      Ajay Devgn Joins Hands With BMC And A Hospital To Set Up 20-Bed COVID-19 Facility In Mumbai

      |

      Superstar and filmmaker Ajay Devgn is a man of few words. True to his demeanour, he has been working quietly with the BMC to provide emergency medical facilities for Mumbaikars affected by COVID-19.

      One hears that even as the BMC commissioners, corporators and others work tirelessly on ground zero, literally round the clock to monitor the emergency services, Devgn himself has been working in close tandem by doing his bit.

      It was reported that last year. he donated ventilators to Dharavi, one of the areas that was badly hit at that point, helping the situation to a great extent. This time around, Devgn and a few of his esteemed colleagues from the film fraternity have gone ahead and helped the BMC to set up an emergency medical unit at Mumbai's Shivaji Park.
