Amitabh Bachchan has pledged to donate resources to help set up a 25-bed oxygen facility in Juhu. Mr. Bachahan has teamed up with producer Anand Pandit for the noble cause.
Anand Pandit, who had already set up a similar facility in Dadar, was quoted by Koimoi as saying: “A 25-bed oxygen facility has been set up at the Ritambhara Vishva Vidyapeeth in Juhu. After a trial run, the center was up and running by 10 am on Tuesday, May 18. Mr. Amitabh Bachchan has donated the equipment and infrastructure for the facility and all necessary permissions have been granted by the BMC.”
“When Amitabh Bachchan ji heard that I was scouting for places in Juhu, he called me and said he wanted to help in every way possible. He has always supported my social initiatives wholeheartedly and also contributed his time and resources. I hope this centre will help bring much needed relief and healing to those in need. We will continue to find ways to make a difference somehow during this tough time,” he adds.
Previously Pandit has joined hands with actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn, to establish a 20-bed Covid-19 ICU at Shivaji Park and is working and scouting locations to set up another one in Borivali.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Amitabh Bachchan stars in Pandit’s production “Chehre”. The makers postponed the theatrical release of the film owing to the Covid outbreak. Apart from Chehre, Amitji also has Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer Brahmastra in his kitty.
