The actor, who is fondly known as ‘Makkal Selvan’ by fans, met TN Chief Minister MK Stalin at the Secretariat on Tuesday and handed over the cheque for Rs 25 lakh. Many Kollywood celebrities have come forward and made donations to the state’s relief fund in the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

On June 5, actor-comedian Soori had met actor and politician Udhayanidhi Stalin and handed over a cheque worth Rs 10 lakh. He also made an additional contribution of Rs 25,000 on behalf of his daughter Vennila and son Sarvan. Members from the Tamil film fraternity such as Ajith, Rajinikanth, Sivakarthikeyan, Shankar, Vetrimaaran, Editor Mohan and his sons Jayam Ravi and Mohan Raja, Soundarya Rajinikanth, Sivakumar, Karthi and Suriya, among others, made donations to the relief fund earlier in response to Chief Minister Stalin’s appeal to citizens to support the government in fighting the pandemic.
