There were reports recently that no Kannada actor had come
forward to raise or donate fund for flood-ravaged Uttarakhand. Now,
we have a confirmed news about an actor standing up for the cause.
Yes, it is none other than Shivaraj Kumar.
Shivaraj Kumar met Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah
recently and handed over the cheque to him. The Hat-trick Hero, who
celebrated his birthday on July 12, had asked not to celebrate the
birthday this year in various ways but to contribute the same
amount for Uttarakhand flood victims.
His fans association, all across the state, collected the money
for the cause. It collected around Rs 6 lakhs from its members and
his fans. And personally, Shivaraj Kumar donated Rs 5 lakh. Well, a
total of Rs 11 lakhs were given to the CM Relief Fund by the
Producers Sa Ra Govind and KP Srikanth accompanied Shivaraj
Kumar. Sources say that the CM thanked Shivaraj Kumar for
generously donating for the flood victims.
