In the situation we are all facing today, it is pertinent that we all help and do our bit for the ones who most need it. Celebrities in our country are also helping out and using their voice and influence to amplify and arrange for medical facilities and more.

Actor and film-maker, Ajay Devgn is one such person who is helping out and doing his bit to quietly help in the current environment. He has been in touch with the BMC to provide emergency medical facilities for Mumbaikars affected by COVID-19. The BMC commissioners, corporators and others are working tirelessly on ground zero and Ajay too is said to have been working in close tandem with them.

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

Local newspapers reported that BMC has converted Bharat Scouts & Guides Hall at Shivaji Park to a 20-bed COVID-19 facility with ventilators, oxygen support and para monitors.

Funds for this have been contributed by Devgn through his social service wing NY Foundations.
Sources say that besides Ajay Devgn himself, filmmakers Anand Pandit, Boney Kapoor, Luv Ranjan, Rajneesh Khanuja, Leena Yadav and Ashim Bajaj; OTT giants, Sameer Nair (Applause), Deepak Dhar & Rishi Negi (Banijay Asia, Seven Tauras Entertainment Private Limited), entrepreneur Tarun Rathi and Action-Director R P Yadav have reportedly made a contribution of over Rs.1 crore to the “Smiley Account” which is the business development cell of the BMC.

Local Shiv Sena corporator Vishaka Raut said, “It is great that Ajay Devgn supported BMC.” COO of Hinduja Hospital, Joy Chakraborty, said that this emergency unit will be an extension of their hospital where they’ll provide food, linen, medicine and man power.
