Renowned celebrities from Bollywood, sports and business fraternities have always been known to be an instrumental force in supporting noble causes, philanthropic work and charitable activities.
Bollywood celebrities, including the young guns, have stepped up to assume responsibility and contribute in their own ways. From Janhvi Kapoor to Ananya Panday, and Arjun Kapoor to Bhumi Pednekar and Tamannaah Bhatia, the large-hearted souls have come forward to support AKHIL BHARTIYA TERAPANTH YUVAK PARISHAD (ABTYP)’s Mega Blood Donation Drive (MBDD) – a simultaneous nationwide collection on 17th September, 2022.
Ahead of the countrywide blood donation drive, several Bollywood celebs have come forward to extend support to the drive on social media.
