Shah Rukh Khan, Gauri turn office space into quarantine facility
SRK also provided 25,000 PPE kits to the frontline medical staff in Maharashtra
Bollywood bigwig Shah Rukh Khan and his wife Gauri offered their four-storey office space for treating Covid-19 patients, and have now shared glimpses of the facility.
Gauri took to Instagram to share snippets from the makeover which was carried out according to the standards set by BMC, under their guidance, reported Hindustan Times.
"#GauriKhanDesign‘s refurbished this office ...a quarantine zone providing essentials and services to those in need. We must stand together and stand strong in this fight against #Covid19," wrote Gauri, sharing a video of the newly converted space.
As seen in the video, the office is now equipped with 22 beds, all placed at a safe distance. SRK also shared a message on Twitter to commemorate the effort. "We both are thankful that we could be a part of your attempts to help and care for Mumbaikars," he said.
When we say ‘mybmc’ then it’s with a sense of ownership and pride in all the efforts your teams are putting up to fight covid 19. We both are thankful that we could be a part of your attempts to help and care for Mumbaikars.— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) April 4, 2020
