Indian author and former actor Twinkle Khanna on Wednesday lauded her neighbour and Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan for contributing towards COVID-19 relief during the time of crisis.

Khanna took to her Instagram handle and shared an appreciation post for Roshan along with a photo of the ‘Bang Bang’ actor. In the caption, she wrote, “Going beyond help thy neighbour, mine is doing his bit during this crisis in multiple ways. A big shout-out @hrithikroshan.”

Recently, Roshan reportedly joined a host of American stars to help raise funds for India’s COVID-19 relief efforts. Doing his bit for those suffering due to the pandemic, Roshan helped raise an estimated $3.68 million (Dh13.5 million).

The second wave of coronavirus has infected many people, and the number of positive cases has been rapidly rising. In Bollywood also, an array of celebrities like Kangana Ranaut, Aamir Khan, Vicky Kaushal, among others have been infected within a span of a few weeks.

With a total of 348,421 new COVID-19 cases being recorded in the last 24 hours, the cumulative count of cases in the country reached 23,340,938, informed the Union Health Ministry. There are currently 3,704,099 active cases in the country.

Roshan, who was last seen in the 2019 film ‘War’, will next feature in ‘Fighter’ alongside Deepika Padukone. He will also start shooting for the Indian adaptation of ‘The Night Manager’.

The actor also has ‘Krrish 4’ and the Hindi remake of the Tamil crime thriller ‘Vikram Vedha’ in the pipeline.
