In a noble initiative, the makers of Prabhas-starrer Radhe Shyam have donated a hospital set with 50 beds, personal protective equipment, medical equipment stands, stretchers and oxygen cylinders to a private hospital. The idea of donating the hospital set and other equipment materialised when Ravinder Reddy, the production designer of Radhe Shyam, got in touch with a CEO of a private hospital to secure a bed for a relative. “When the CEO said that there were no beds available, and that they were having difficulty in procuring, I realised the acute shortage and the gravity of the issue. Soon, I asked the filmmakers if we could contribute our hospital set, which we built for the film, for the Covid-19 patients. They immediately agreed,” Ravinder told Deccan Chronicle.
Ravinder also revealed that Prabhas and the entire unit of Radhe Shyam are happy with the decision as the hospital set and other equipment are helping Covid-19 patients. In recent times, several celebrities have come forward to do their bit to fight the pandemic. Some celebrities are using their influence on social media and amplifying emergency calls for medical help. ‘Radhe Shyam’ is a romantic drama film starring Prabhas and Pooja Hegde as leads. The Radha Krishna Kumar directorial is simultaneously shot in Telugu and Hindi. Apart from this, Prabhas is also a part of other pan-India films that include Om Raut’s ‘Adipurush’ which also stars Saif Ali Khan, Kriti Sanon and Sunny Singh in lead roles. The south superstar also has ‘Salaar’ in his kitty. Prabhas will also be collaborating with Deepika Padukone in Nag Ashwin’s next.
