Shah Rukh Khan is famously known for his philanthropy work even though he prefers not to talk about it openly. He is the first Indian to be awarded with a Unesco Award. Us SRKians, while we follow his style and reel examples, how can we be far behind to follow his real life amazing examples like these? So we started with the SRKUniverse Initiative and extended our love for SRK to our fellow human beings.
Read on about the amazing initiative carried on my Shah’s Responsible Knights as explained by the flag bearer Aanchal Jhamb in Delhi:
“This initiative was called as SRK Initiative, as I started it with the few members of our SRK Universe Delhi NCR family. ‘SRK or Shah’s Responsible Knights’ as we call ourselves too, we decided to conduct our first drive under this name on his 25th Bollywood Anniversary.i.e. 25June 2017
During the Delhi FDFS events of Dilwale and Fan, we realised that all of us had a yearning to do something for our fellow human beings. So we thought that it was a time to get involved more deeply into this. I had few of my school mates working for Robin Hood Army. I contacted them. They knew areas where we could serve some 200 people.
A week before the destined Sunday, the planning started.
I collected money from about 15 people, and brought Burgers, Frooti and Muffins for 200 people.We distributed them to the people near Dwarka Sec 11 metro station.
The happiness we received laid the foundation for the next one with much more enthusiasm and that very day the date for next drive was decided.
For our next drive we decided to extend our help at a leprosy center initially. But then I came to know that there are several people who stay just outside the AIIMS hospital and at the metro station. I talked with the team and they all understood who were the more needy ones.
Bread Pakora and Lime Flavored Drink formed a part of this drive that again served 200 people just at Gate No 1 of AIIMS Metro Station on July 23, 2017.
Episode 3 for the same, we decided to conduct on the JHMS Day.
At that time we decided to approach the same school which we approached at Dilwale time and serve 100 kids out there. We got a meal prepared by Burger King that had Burger, French Fries and Coke. We danced with them too.
The best part of that drive was that the people over there recognized us.
Our video of having a great time and dancing with the kids.
And the last drive that was conducted by us was on August 13, 2017, where the number grew up to 300 and Rajma Chawal and coke was served at that cluster. It was served at the same place as the first drive. And again the kids and people out there welcomed us with all their love and recognized us.
PS: We always ensure that we don’t throw the used disposables just like that, so we also collect the waste and dump it. Swachh Bharat Campaign going side by side!!!
This YT video sums it up for us :)”
Kudos to the SRKUniverse Delhi team for this amazing work.
