In the wake of the novel coronavirus, the actor has taken the help of his companies – Kolkata Knight Riders, Red Chillies Entertainment, Meer Foundation and Red Chillies VFX – to provide support to the governments.
After starting seven initiatives, the couple has now offered their personal office space in Mumbai for quarantine purpose. Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation shared the same on Twitter and thanked the couple for their support. “We thank @iamsrk & @gaurikhan for offering their 4-storey personal office space to help expand our Quarantine capacity equipped with essentials for quarantined children, women & elderly. Indeed a thoughtful & timely gesture!”

Shah Rukh Khan announced a series of initiatives to help the central and state governments in their fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
“In these times it’s imp to make everyone around u working tirelessly for u.. not related to u.. perhaps even unknown to u… to feel they are not alone and by themselves. Let’s just make sure we all do our little bit to look after each other. India and all Indians are One Family,” tweeted out Shah Rukh Khan.
