Our Bollywood celebrities are doing every bit they could do to control the spread of coronavirus. Ajay Devgn also joined the bandwagon in the fight against Covid-19. When the ‘Singham’ actor was approached to pay for oxygen, ventilators at new Dharavi quarantine facility, he readily accepted.

The products will be used at a 200-bed quarantine facility in Dharavi, constructed in 15 days.
