Mumbai, July 10: Bollywood celebrities such as Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan and many others finally stepped forward to help the victims who suffered tremendous loss due to flood in Uttarakhand.

The two actors donated Rs 25 lakh each for the flood-ravaged hill state. Speaking about their move of donating money to the Prime Minister fund, Hrithik Roshan said, "One must do what one can to help others in need. It must become part of your belief system and must start at home."

The actor also said, "Also, I believe one must talk about his charities. The old belief of 'self-glorification' giving and not talking about it does not serve the higher purpose of teaching people to give and propagating the ideal."
