Anonymous : The money they are collecting is not yet coming to India where is the money. This time India needs that supplies. Are they collecting money to pay their home mortgage payment or paying their own bills. PV post it. I suspect their intention. One year ago Priyanka announced donation for Bihar and she did not donate anything. This time she is collecting from Hollywood people why is she not sending oxygen cylinders yet.
