Celebrities gear up to help Mumbai blast victims
July 13, 2006
In times of national emergency, India stands up united. The first move comes from Bollywood, where stars gather and show their sympathy and support.
Mumbai Blast
In the wake of Mumbai serial blasts on Tuesday, Bollywood celebrities gathered to donate blood and pep up the spirit of Mumbaikars. Shabana Azmi, Lyricist Javed Akthar, Actor Rahul Bose, Parvin Dabbas and Rakhi Sawant rushed to hospitals where victims were being treated and offered to donate blood.

Rahul Bose, who offered to travel by local train the next day for a news channel said: “The common man is not afraid of such incidents.
What scares him most is the prospect of losing jobs. Mumbaikars are resilient and they have showed it time and again. However, what they are afraid of is the communal riots for terror has no face at all and it is the innocent who bear the brunt of a blind backlash.” Rahul rushed to Babha Hospital but the hospital didn’t need blood.
Javed Akhtar and his wife Shabana Azmi also went to Bhabha Hospital, as well as to KEM Hospital to donate blood. “We went there, but the hospitals told us that blood was not needed,” said Javed. “I am shocked at the mindset of the people who could carry out such an inhuman act. I want to tell these terrorists that although they have been successful in killing people, they cannot kill the spirit of Mumbai. The unity of Mumbaikars and their sense of solidarity are evident for all to see,” he added.
Rakhi Sawant
Item girl Rakhi Sawant too visited the victims. The girl went to Nanavati hospital to donate blood.

Earlier during the Kargil war too, many of our heroes went to the border area to cheer up our soldiers. In times of crisis, everyone in the industry shows that they too have hearts and that they too are made of the common stuff that unites all in brotherhood.
