At ZEE, we believe in not only providing extraordinary entertainment to our viewers, but also going beyond the enterprise to make meaningful and focused efforts to bring about positive change across the country. We sincerely hope that supporting the release of the film ‘Radhe’ will help strengthen the resources to provide essential assistance to people affected by the pandemic, ‘a spokesman for Zee Enterprises said in a statement. .

“We are pleased to be part of this noble initiative to contribute to the country’s fight against Covid-19. Since the past year, we have been consistent in our efforts to fight COVID-19 as this unprecedented crisis has hit our country and the world. It is very important that we also realize that the release of a prescribed film can in no way help us, but it is a more appropriate and pragmatic approach to use its proceeds to fight the pandemic. “Radhe’s release on ZEE5 and ZeePlex will enable us to contribute more in these extremely difficult times,” a SKF spokesman said. India is reportedly plagued by a severe second COVID-19 wave as daily infections rose by 382,315 on 5 May. Actors like Khan use their fame to help frontline workers in Mumbai. Other Bollywood stars like Taapsee Pannu, Bhumi Pednekar and Swara Bhasker are constantly online to help those in need.
