Malayalam actor Rajeev Pillai postponed his wedding to help rescue people of Nannoor, his hometown. Actress Richa Chadha, who co-stars with the actor in an upcoming film Shakaeela, revealed his story on Instgram.
My friend and costar in #Shakeela , @rajeev_govinda_pillai postponed his wedding, which was to happen three days ago, in order to help out in rescue efforts in his hometown of Nannoor , Kerala. They made rafts, carried boats by road to the low lying areas, made good use of all the muscle. Bravo! PS- apart from obvious resourceful-ness, helpfulness, I think this is when fitness comes in handy. When you’re strong, agile, you can be of use in adverse conditions. The young men and the fishermen in this town worked till late in the night to save people from the rising water.
Esha Gupta, Dino Morea, Sonal Chauhan and Ali Fazal are among others, who urged fans to help people of Kerala through their post on social media.
