New Delhi: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has donated Rs 2 crore to Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur COVID Care Centre at the Gurdwara Rakab Ganj Sahib here to help them combat the COVID-19 crisis.

Manjinder Singh Sirsa, president of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee, shared the news on Twitter.

”’Sikhs are Legendary, salute to their service.’ These were the words of @SrBachchan Ji when he contributed Rs 2 Cr to Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Covid Care Facility,” Sirsa wrote on Sunday.

He said when Delhi was facing a crunch in oxygen supply, Bachchan would every day enquire about the progress at the facility, which started operations on Monday afternoon with 300 beds.

In another tweet, Sirsa informed that the 78-year-old actor has also arranged oxygen cylinders from abroad for the facility.

”He is not just a REEL Hero but a Real-life Hero,” he said.

During the ”VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World,” which aired on Sunday, Bachchan had also urged the global community to help India, which is currently battling a deadly second wave of the COVId-19 pandemic.

”My country India is battling with the sudden surge of the second wave of COVID-19. As a global citizen, I appeal to all global citizens to rise up, speak to your governments, your pharmaceutical companies, and ask them to donate, to give, to extend a helping hand to the public that needs it the most. Every effort counts,” he had said.

On Sunday, Delhi recorded 273 COVID-19 deaths and 13,336 new infections, the health department said.
