The continuous rains in Kerala have devastated the lives of people and several of them have lost their homes and are left with no food to eat. People around the country are contributing monetarily and even our very own Bollywood stars such as Shahrukh Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan, Esha Gupta and several others have contributed a big sum towards the relief fund and have urged their fans to do the same.
As per the state authorities, the death toll has reached to 197 in Kerala and around 36 people are missing since August 8, 2018, due to floods and landslides. The report also states that over 3.14 Lakh people are in relief camps and the numbers are only increasing by the day. Check out what Bollywood celebrities tweeted below regarding the Kerala floods.
