Actress Aakanksha Singh is currently in her hometown, Jaipur. Since Rajasthan is under lockdown, the actress decided to not just offer help to the needy but also the city police personnel who spend all day protecting the city.
As the mercury levels continue to soar by the day, Aakanksha, who will next be seen in the Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgn-starrer Mayday, got along with a few volunteers and distributed buttermilk and water bottles to the cops stationed between RUHS College and JLN Marg in Jaipur.
“While we sit in the comfort of our homes and are in a safe environment, our frontline Corona warriors put their lives at risk every day. They leave their families behind to protect us and our police force is working round the clock. I feel that we often take them for granted. In fact, we also treat them as villains sometimes. But they are the ones working hard to keep us safe,” says Aakanksha, as she goes on to explain why she donated essentials to the cops.
She says that while volunteers have been helping Covid-19 patients by donating food to them and their families, people often forget about those who are doing their duty in these difficult times, battling the summer and the chances of catching the virus. “So, I thought of helping out by distributing water and buttermilk to the cops. This is the least we can do for them. With this initiative, I have seen the happiness on their faces and it’s priceless,” says the actress.
