Bachchan had contributed to the Kerala Chief Minister’s Distress Relief Fund, whose work is being coordinated and supervised by Academy Award-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty, who acknowledged his contribution in a tweet.

Several other actors from the Hindi film industry have shown support for the stranded and homeless in Kerala by contributing to various relief centres working towards the victims. Shah Rukh Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput and Hrithik Roshan are among the many who have lent support as well as urged others to also do the same.
