New Delhi: In a noble cause, Arjun Kapoor has lent support to as many as 100 underprivileged couples fighting cancer this Valentine’s Day.
The actor said that this cause is quite close to his heart. Talking about the same Arjun told a portal, “The pandemic has taught all of us the importance of helping one another and spreading love whenever we can. We all look forward to celebrating Valentine’s month in February, to make our loved ones feel special. But I have decided to do something different, this time.”
“Along with Cancer Patients Aid Association, I am supporting medical treatment for 100 underprivileged couples who are impacted by cancer, which means one partner is battling this deadly disease as the other one is supportive in every step of this fight,” he added.
He added, “Cancer severely impacts one’s immunity, making them extremely vulnerable to the coronavirus. The previous year has been very painful for these couples. Not only were they fighting a hard battle, but they were also confined to their homes facing the severe threat of Covid-19. Many of them did not even have the source of income to buy food and essential medicines.”
On the professional front, Arjun was last seen in ‘Panipat’, and he will be next seen in ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’, also featuring Parineeti Chopra.
