Raj Shandilya, the writer and director of the 2019 Ayushman Khurana starrer superhit film ‘Dreamgirl’, has extended his helping hand to help the corona patients.
Due to shortage of beds for Corona patients in Mumbai, Raj Shandilya has decided to convert his office in Andheri (West), Mumbai to a Kovid Center and for this he has got permission from BMC.

The people of the industry should come forward and take this kind of initiative. “
