Choreographer Raghava Lawrence sets up Abdul Kalam Trust; donates Rs. 1 crore to it

Raghava Lawrence, a well known name in the South Indian Film industry, the choreographer-turned-director has done a commendable act by opening up a charity in the name of former President Late A.P.J. Abdul Kalam and by also donating Rs. 1 crore to it.

Raghava is known for hit Tamil franchise called Muni. Hindustan Times reported that he contributed the advance money he received for his upcoming flick Mottai Siva Ketta Siva (Bald Siva, Bad Siva). He explained, while speaking to the press in Chennai that he decided to take this step as he wanted to give back to society for contributing to his rise to fame.

He said,

I once helped a woman anonymously to get tickets for my film Kanchana 1. At that time I was not a huge star. After Kanchana became a hit, Sun TV approached for second part. I immediately thought of the woman I had helped. I’m what I’m today because of such women. So I decided to do something for the society.

I want 100 youngsters to take charge of the money and spend it for good causes. I have named this trust Abdul Kalam Trust where others can also contribute.

Raghav Lawrence has also roped in Kajal Aggarwal for Mottai Siva Ketta Siva.
