Ram Charan said that he was inspired by Pawan Kalyan to do so.


Andhra Pradesh is struggling to rebuild itself and restore normalcy, following the cyclone Titli, which hit the Andhra-Odisha coast two weeks ago. Tollywood celebrities have been making generous donations to the AP CM relief fund and are providing aid to the affected in AP. The latest to join the bandwagon is actor Ram Charan Teja, who in a press release on Sunday, announced his decision to adopt a village in one of the cyclone ravaged areas in Srikakulam.

In the press release which was posted by Ram Charan’s PR Vamsi Kaka on Twitter, the former writes how actor-politician Pawan Kalyan inspired him to do his bit for the affected people in Andhra. Pawan Kalyan, who was on a tour to Srikakulam district to provide relief to affected people, has been requesting his co-stars and politicians to help the people in Srikakulam.

It is said that Pawan Kalyan urged Ram Charan to adopt a village in Srikakulam and help the people to get back to normalcy soon. Following this, the Rangasthalam star issued a statement on the same on Sunday.

“I'm glad that Babai (Pawan Kalyan) came up with this idea and it makes me extremely happy and privileged that I'm in a position to contribute and make a difference. I've decided to implement Babai's suggestion and have already discussed it with my team to initiate the process,” wrote Ram Charan in his press statement.


The first to make a contribution was actor Vijay Deverakonda, who donated Rs 5 lakh to the CM’s relief fund. Following this, actor Jr NTR donated Rs 15 lakh and his brother Kalyan Ram donated Rs 5 lakh to the CM relief fund.

Actor Manchu Manoj promised to adopt all children affected by the cyclone and give proper education to them. He announced the same in a tweet last week, and also appreciated the youth who were involved in the relief work.

A couple of other celebrities have also been instrumental in coordinating disaster relief work and are reaching out to people in affected areas. Actor Nikhil Siddharth received much applause for his ground work in Srikakulam, providing food and other basic necessities to people staying in relief camps.

Rana Daggubatti sent 750 essential supply kits to the victims and Allu Arjun donated Rs 25 lakh worth relief material to the cyclone affected in Andhra.
