Actor Ajay Devgn To Set Up COVID-19 Medical Unit At Mumbai’s Shivaji Park With BMC

Mumbai: Little known to his fans and the public, actor Ajay Devgn has been working quietly with the BMC to provide emergency medical facilities for people affected with COVID-19. Devgn himself has been working in close tandem and doing his bit, News18 reported.

The ‘Singham’ actor and a few colleagues from the film fraternity have helped the BMC set up an emergency medical unit at Mumbai’s Shivaji Park. According to local newspapers, 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, the report added.

Besides Devgn, 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, the report further added.

Last year, Devgn donated ventilators to Dharavi, one of the areas that were badly hit at that point, helping the situation to a great extent, News18 said.
