With the nation fighting deadly Coronavirus pandemic, celebrities from all walks of life are coming ahead to help the needy in every possible way. Bollywood actor Rakulpreet Singh has pledged to help 200 families in a Gurugram slum, near her house.
Revealing details in an interview with a popular daily, Rakul said that she will continue serving people till the lockdown is over. The actor said that the two meals of the day are being cooked in her society and then sent out to the families in the slum. Calling herself 'privileged', Rakul said it is important to give back to the society as it gives her happiness to see the smiles on their faces.
The actor revealed that she couldn't have done it without her parents' help as they are monitoring everything. "For me, nothing can give me more happiness than the smiles on these people's faces when they will eat their meal. And that will make me extremely happy. So that's my way of expressing my gratitude for everything I have and it is a very small effort. Whoever can make a difference should, because I truly believe in giving back to society," Rakulpreet concluded.
