Actor Shraddha Srinath too has been retweeting the Twitter pleas from people of various States requesting help for their loved ones, brothers or extended family members, even the general public.

Venkatesh Daggubati has been putting posts on Twitter requesting people for verified leads. Suresh Productions had announced that it would help out people in need of medical resources like oxygen cylinders, beds, ventilators etc. “Our country is collectively going through a distressing time. Information about the resources available is key today. Suresh Production will help in identifying and amplifying the resources available in the best way we can. Stay safe,” read the post.

A couple of days ago, Telugu Superstar Mahesh Babu urged people to get vaccinated calling it the need of the hour. “Done with my vaccination! Please get yours!!
