As if the Coronavirus crisis was not enough to deal with already, Bengal and Odisha were devastated by a terrible cyclone called Amphan last week. The biggest cyclone to happen in almost 200 years, Amphan tore its way through the states, uprooting ancient trees, destroying buildings, and leaving a trail of immense loss in its wake. As we come together to rebuild and recover from this, here are some of our favourite celebrities who have turned real-life heroes and come forward to help out.

Actor Swastika Mukherjee, who has starred in the ZEE5 Original film The Lovely Mrs Mookherjee, was safe in Mumbai at the time. However, she has demonstrated her support by contributing to and raising funds for those affected, with the help of her sister and brother-in-law. Follow this link for details:
