Telugu heroes, who are often in the forefront when it comes to lending a helping hand, are maintaing a bizarre silence on Chennai floods. The city is sinking with badly hit rains and the actors and actress of Kollywood are doing their honest best to help the victims.
Stars like Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Vikram, Surya, Vishal, Karthi and many other small and big time actors have donated money for the CM relief fund while some of the celebrities like Siddharath, Khusboo and singer Chinmayi, are out on roads helping the needy and serving the food in the affected areas.
In fact many Tamil heroes, who managed to build a decent market in Telugu, have responded in the same way when Vishakapatnam, located in Andhra Pradesh, was hit by Hud-Hud cyclone last year. Apparently, it is pretty surprising to see our Telugu heroes being mum about the disaster taking place in the neighbouring state.
Stars like Mahesh Babu and Prabhas, were not only born in Chennai, but were also striving hard to expand their market in Tamil. We can say they are slightly succesful with their recent ventures Srimanthudu and Baahubali, respectively. But it is indeed shocking that they did not put forward even a word for Chennai, while the city is being beaten up by the natural calamity, from last 15 days.
Maybe we are just expecting it little early from them. But it is undeniably an echoing silence. On that note, we must really appreciate Sampoornesh Babu for being the first from Telugu film fraternity to come forward and donate ₹50000 to Tamilnadu CM relief fund. Let us wait and see who follows next in order. Meanwhile, let our prayers be with Chennai.
