BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: As much as the Indian public likes watching movies, it seems to have far greater interest in keeping track of how many Bollywood actors are donating to the coronavirus relief efforts.
Coming under attack are Sonakshi Sinha and the legendary Amitabh Bachchan. After being called out by their fans and supporters for not contributing to the centre or state relief funds for aiding the crisis and providing food and basic necessities to daily wagers and other lower income classes who are in a desperate situation because of the lockdown, both actors had a fitting reply for their doubters.
Sonakshi silenced her critics by saying that announcements should not necessarily follow good deeds as it’s a personal choice. She tweeted, “Minute of silence for trolls who think that just because it wasn’t announced,contributions weren’t made.Neki kar dariya mein daal,suna toh hoga?Kuch log actually follow karte hai!Ab shaant ho jao & use ur time 2 do some actual good(announcing or not is a personal preference)”.

Amitabh Bachchan also posted a somewhat similar message. “Ek ne diya aur keh diya ke diya, dusre ne diya aur kaha nahi ki diya. Dusri shreni me hi rehne do mujhe e priyajan, Jise mila wo kya jaane kisne diya, jano uska bus karun krandan in halato me aur kya kaha jaye, Jo janein mujhe jaanein, mai to swabhao se hi raha hu kamsukhan (One gave and said that he did, another gave and did not say that he did. Let me be in the second category. The one who receives knows not who gave it just know his emotions, those who know me, know I have always been one to talk less),” read his tweet.
T 3484 -एक ने दिया और कह दिया,कि दिया,
दूसरे ने दिया और कहा नहीं,कि दिया,
दूसरी श्रेणी में ही रहने दो मुझे ऐ प्रीयजन
जिसे मिला, वो क्या जाने किसने दिया; जानो उसका बस करुण क्रंदन।
इन हालातों में और क्या कहा जाए ,
जो जानें मुझे,जानें, मैं तो सदा स्वभाव से ही रहा हूँ कमसुख़न ! pic.twitter.com/0S8uRBOVIC
