Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma have started a fundraising campaign to aid the second wave of the deadly Coronavirus relief. Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma have donated INR 2 crore to this fundraiser and have set a target of raising a total of INR 7 crore.

Earlier on Friday, the star duo shared a video on social media announcing that they have started a fundraiser for Covid-19 relief. After donating INR 2 crore themselves, they urged everyone to do the same and help fight the novel coronavirus. The fundraiser crossed the halfway mark of its target of 7 crore in a day.

“Since the Covid-19 outbreak, our country is going through trying times, our health systems are being challenged, we need to come together and help our India. Anushka and I have started a campaign on Ketto, to raise funds for Covid-19 relief, and we would be grateful for your support. No amount is too small to save lives. We will do everything we can to make a difference, but we need your help to fight this. I urge you all to join our movement. Let’s do our part to keep our country safe and strong. Thank you.
