About a week ago, Farah Khan took to social media to announce her daughter, Anya’s philanthropic initiative of feeding the homeless and stray animals affected by the pandemic. It was music to the ears to witness such a heart whelming initiative taken by a 12-year-old. The proud filmmaker elaborated on the action by mentioning the fact that Anya will sketch pets and sell the same for a small price of Rupees 1000 each.
A few days later, Farah again took to social media to break the heart-warming news of Anya raising Rupees 70000 for her philanthropic initiative. In her Twitter post on Sunday, she gladly wrote how her daughter Anya has managed to raise Rs 70000 in a matter of 5 days, by merely sketching pes. Every sketch of her capitalized a sum of Rs 1000. She also thanked her “kind-hearted” fans and users who helped in making the initiative a success by readily placing orders.
We were thrilled to hear such glad tidings. But what cannot be ignored is the fact that Farah broke the news on National Pretzel day(a day to celebrate and donate pretzels to the needy).
To add icing on the cake, on Monday, she again took to social media, this time Instagram, to vaunt her long-shared bond with Abhishek Bachchan, by uploading an old picture of them together collaged with a sketch of a four-legged-friend saying thank you.
Of course, we are aware of her seemingly tight yet warm hugs. Ed Shareen, are you missing them?
However, the choreographer also dissed a few celebrities while breaking the great tidings. In a video of herself, on Instagram, she was seen throwing shade on a chunk of stars who are concerned only about staying fit and making sure they remain in size in the period of such a global crisis. She even went on to say that she’d not hesitate to unfollow such inconsiderate stars. We wonder who they were. Not to mention a slew of celebrities are being seen working out on their pages, including Katrina Kaif and Sara Ali Khan.
We genuinely hope Anya continues to make us happy and proud of her baby steps towards benevolence amid the pandemic, which has claimed lakhs of lives and mandated billions to stay under lockdown. The world, especially India, is in dire need of such altruism.
