Amitabh Bachchan helps set up a 25 bed oxygen facility
Veteran Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has helped set up a 25-bed oxygen facility in Juhu, Mumbai by donating the equipment and infrastructure needed for the facility. After a trial run, the centre started functioning at the Ritambhara Vishva Vidyapeeth from 10 am on Tuesday, May 18, said producer Anand Pandit who teamed up with Big B for the same. Bachchan stars in Pandit's production Chehre, the theatrical release of which has been postponed due to the Covid outbreak. Mr Bachchan has donated the equipment and infrastructure for the facility and all necessary permissions have been granted by the BMC. I hope this centre will help bring much needed relief and healing to those in need. We will continue to find ways to make a difference somehow during this tough time, IANS quoted Pandit as saying. Pandit had recently teamed up with actor-filmmaker Ajay Devgn, too, to establish a 20-bed Covid-19 ICU at Shivaji Park. He is also working and scouting locations to set up another one in Borivali.
