Yash shared the statement in both Kannada and English languages. It read: “Covid 19 has proved to be an invisible enemy that has dismantled the livelihoods of innumerable people across our country. Our own Kannada Film fraternity has been badly affected as well. In light of the grave times we live in, To each of the 3000 odd members which include all the 21 departments of our film fraternity, I will be donating from my earnings, a sum of Rs 5000 to their personal accounts. While I am very well aware that this may not serve as a solution to the loss and the pains caused by the situation we are in, it’s a ray of hope, since it’s HOPE that is the certainty of faith, Faith of better times (sic).”

In this time of crisis, be it Tollywood, Kollywood, Bollywood, or Sandalwood, many celebs have come forward to help people fight the pandemic. While some are making donations, some are arranging oxygen cylinders or setting up oxygen banks while some celebs are launching the Covid-19 vaccination drive. Yash has also joined the bandwagon and this is indeed a noble gesture by him.
Meanwhile, Kannada film star Yash has topped the list of Most Desirable Man of 2020 for the third time in a row. Bangalore Times has shared this information on their official Twitter handle.
