Actor Siddharth and RJ Balaji from Big FM 92.7 have gotten together a team of volunteers to assist the people stranded in Chennai. In a rare instance of a celebrity going out on ground zero, Siddharth and Balaji have done some exceptional work by co-ordinating relief activities in the city by tweeting out advice, listing down supplies needed and guiding volunteers.
With Tamil Nadu reeling under the worst floods to hit the state in a century and with rescue operations getting underway, actors Siddharth and RJ Balaji, popular among Tamil audiences, turned out to help the people. Siddharth was one of the victims of the rains. His house in the city was submerged, but that didn’t stop him from stepping out and helping those in need.

“I am very proud of what the city had to offer in such a disaster. I think the community held up really well and also would like to thank a few of my friends, namely actor Siddharth and RJ Balaji. They were on the roads (to help people) and the spirit of Chennai came out really well. I feel gutted for the families who have lost everything in this disaster. Once the series is done I will definitely put my best foot forward for those people,” R Ashwin said in a message posted on bcci.tv.
