Superstar Rajinikanth donates THIS whopping amount for daily wage workers
South Superstar Rajinikanth donated Rs 50 lakh to FEFSI.
Superstar Rajinikanth is reported to have made a sizeable donation for the wellbeing of daily wage workers of South Indian Film Industry as the shoots of TV shows and movies have been put on hold due to Coronavirus outbreak.
According to reports, Rajinikanth has donated Rs 50 lakh to Film Employees Federation of South India (FEFSI) aiming to help daily wage workers. The donation of Rajinikanth came hours after FEFSI appealed requesting all the South Indian film fraternity to provide financial assistance to the daily wage members of the federation.
This is not the first time Rajinikanth donated a whopping amount to help needy people. Earlier, the Darbar actor reportedly had donated Rs 15 lakh for the flood victims in Kerala.

Besides financial help, actors Parthipan and Prakash Raj have provided hundreds of rice bags weighing 25 kg each.
