Bollywood actor/producer Anushka Sharma and Indian cricketer Virat Kohli turned up to provide help for a child suffering from spinal muscular atrophy(SPA), a rare genetic disorder. The patient required a medicine named Zolgensma which cost Rs. 16 crore to recover.
Parents of the patient, Ayaansh Gupta, created a Twitter handle called AyaanshFightsSMA and thanked all those who supported them in crowdsourcing funds for the expensive medicine. They thanked several celebrities including Anushka and Virat on Monday.
Sharing a picture of Anushka and Virat, they wrote, “@imVkohli & @AnushkaSharma – we always loved you as fans. But what you have done for Ayaansh and this campaign is beyond what we expected. Thanks for your generosity. You helped us win this match of life with a six! Will always be indebted for your help to #saveayaanshgupta.”
