Impressed with Rajeev's efforts, Richa shared his story on her official Instagram, along with a picture and a video featuring him.
“My friend and costar in #Shakeela, @rajeev_govinda_pillai postponed his wedding, which was to happen three days ago, in order to help out in rescue efforts in his hometown of Nannoor, Kerala. They made rafts, carried boats by road to the low lying areas, made good use of all the muscle. Bravo!" the post read.
My friend and costar in #Shakeela , @rajeev_govinda_pillai postponed his wedding, which was to happen three days ago, in order to help out in rescue efforts in his hometown of Nannoor , Kerala. They made rafts, carried boats by road to the low lying areas, made good use of all the muscle. Bravo! 👏 . . . . . . . . . PS- apart from obvious resourceful-ness, helpfulness, I think this is when fitness comes in handy. When you’re strong, agile, you can be of use in adverse conditions. The young men and the fishermen in this town worked till late in the night to save people from the rising water.
Rajeev, too, took to Instagram to share devastating pictures of the state which has been receiving heavy rainfall for weeks now, with some areas experiencing continuous rain for the last 48 hours.
“And that behind me is the main road, next to the house... mode of transportation has changed though," he captioned the image.
Many other celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Kamal Haasan, Akshay Kumar and Sushant Singh Rajput have also come to the help of people affected by one of the worst natural disasters in Kerala in more than nine decades.
