Given how going out is not an option, due to the coronavirus scare leading to a nationwide lockdown, Pinkvilla is keeping up to date with the celebrities through Instagram Live. Today, we got a chance to catch up with the beloved comedian and The Kapil Sharma Show host himself, Kapil Sharma, who is quarantining with wife Ginni Chatrath and four-month-old daughter Anayra Sharma in Mumbai. On March 26, 2020, Kapil had tweeted about how he was donating Rs 50 lakh to the PM relief fund to fight coronavirus. Sharma was amongst the first celebrities to do so.

We asked Kapil about the donation and what made him take such an honourable step, to which the 38-year-old comedian shared with us, "In today's time, with what's happening all over the world... this is probably the first time ever that the world has stopped completely. The lockdown is not only in India but everywhere around the world as well. Hence, it's the need of the hour to think collectively as a family. The ones who can afford, whatever you feel like donating, from your heart, there are many ways to do so... including NGOs. We can also help the people around us."

"My aim was to do something good. I saw a South superstar donating to the PM relief fund and felt I should also donate. We're trying to help out near our locality as well. We should all help out, in whatever capacity that we can," Sharma added.
