Everything is being done with utmost discretion as Bachchanji doesn’t want it to be publicised. He was moved by the plight of the migrant workers and decided to help them. He has chartered the Indigo Airlines’ Varanasi-bound flight that is scheduled to depart on Wednesday morning. The 180 migrants scheduled to travel on the morning flight have been asked to report to the airport at 6 am. The initial plan was to send them home by train, but the logistics didn’t work out.

In addition, the actor’s team has allegedly distributed ration packets and donated face masks, PPE kits and ration packets for sanitizers to medical institutions and police stations in Mumbai.

On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan will appear in Shoojit Sircar Gulabo Sitabo alongside Ayushmann Khurana , which is set to premiere on June 12 on Amazon Prime.
