Chennai, Dec 3: Rajinikanth is the superstar of Tollywood. In most of his movies, the actor is shown as a superman. But in real life, actor Siddharth played the role of a real "Hero".
Siddharth along with his team of volunteers surpassed everyone when it came to the point of helping stranded people in Chennai.
Another celebrity, RJ Balaji from Big FM 92.7 too has joined Siddharth to work along with the rescue team in the capital city of Tamil Nadu.
Speaking about their rescue operations, Siddharth was quoted as saying, "We have around 2,000 odd food packets as of now and we are segregating them as we get them. One problem is that the food needs to be packed and we can't take it in utensils. We have three cars as of now and we have four on stand-by in case the rain speeds up again."
The actor used micro-blogging site Twitter as one of his best weapons to deal the horrific situation. At least 269 people died so far, announced Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
If you are not part of relief work please stay indoors. People crowding bridges to see flood sights are a nuisance. Stay home. #TNflood— Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) December 2, 2015
