Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor Khan
on Tuesday took to Instagram and announced that she along with husband Saif Ali Khan would be donating to UNICEF, GIVE INDIA and the International Association for Human Values (IAHV), in the fight against the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.
"At difficult times like these, we need to come together and help each other. We both have taken steps to do just that and have pledged our support to UNICEF, GIVE INDIA and the International Association for Human Values (IAHV). We urge those of you who can to do the same. United we stand. Jai Hind. Kareena, Saif, and Taimur," wrote Kareena. However, the fact that they have chosen to donate to global agencies over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's PM-Cares Fund has not gone down well with a section of social media. Although many of her fans lauded her noble gesture, some others were critical of the decision.
One user commented: "What a way to avoid donating to Indian cause and still be called philanthropic."
Another user directly asked: "Why not to PM-CARES?" Criticizing the actress, another user expressed: "Bebo doesn't care about PM-CARES." Another user trolled: "Obviously you will not give anything to PM-CARES. Why UNICEF? For publicity?"
The couple has not yet commented on the issue. But it was a noble gesture on their part and any debate on this issue is just not required.
Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan are happily quarantined with little Taimur and Kareena never fails to share her quarantine updates with her fans.
