BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Though actor and businessman Sachiin J Joshi is in self-isolation in Dubai, he has made sure to provide food to the frontline workers in the COVID-19 fight, policemen and municipal workers in Mumbai through his trust Big Brother Foundation. And now, he has offered Beatle Hotel in Powai, Mumbai to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to quarantine COVID-19 patients coming from abroad. Beatle Hotel is a 36-room boutique hotel located in the heart of Powai.
When contacted Sachiin said, “Mumbai being a densely populated city, there are not enough hospitals and beds to take measures to save our city. When the BMC approached us for help, we voluntarily agreed to help.”
The Viiking Group’s CMD, who was last seen in Amavas opposite Nargis Fakhri and Mona Singh, has also starred in numerous films including his Bollywood debut with Aazaan, Jackpot opposite Sunny Leone, Veerappan opposite Lisa Ray and Usha Jadhav among others films. “We’ve converted our hotel with the BMC’s help into a quarantine facility for travellers,” he added.
The BMC has taken precaution measures seriously, having issued guidelines for quarantine including special doctors and nurses assigned for regular check-up. “The entire building and rooms get sanitized regularly with staff equipped with the necessary gear.”
“I’m glad that our hotel in Powai has been given to the BMC for quarantining people. It’s my husband’s decision and I respect and support it,” expressed actor Urvashi Sharma of Naqaab fame and Sachiin’s better half. “We have been distributing food from our hotel to all officials and people stuck on the road.”
Earlier, Shah Rukh Khan and wife Gauri had given their posh Bandra office to BMC to turn it into quarantine facility. Bollywood’s Badshah has also equipped the office space with essentials for those in need who will be quarantined there
