Paras Chhabra On Helping The Needy

In an interview, Paras Chhabra talked about it distributing essentials to the needy. He said, “Bigg Boss is a platform that brings in a lot of popularity and Bigg Boss 13 was one of the highest-rated seasons so far so every single contestant is popular right now. So whatever people are talking about that we are doing this to show off but that is not true. We go out to buy essentials ourselves and we see how there are people, the daily wage earners who are asking for essentials like aata among other things. We are celebrities and we share photos of brands, etc so that people are buying it. And so, if we can do that, what is wrong with helping out people who are needier and promote that on social media?”

“I simply thought if I can help and contribute to making things easier for them, then why not? Also, they don’t even have masks or sanitizers, so I just did my bit and gave them the essentials and did what was in my capacity. So that was for people who belong to well to do families and of course WHO has laid out guidelines to step out and we must follow those while doing it. Now if someone is interpreting it in another sense and calling it show off, then that does not bother me. It is simply about helping someone and positivity, we are all sitting at home anyway, so why not,” he added.

On Jay Bhanushali Calling It A PR Stunt

Paras Chhabra shared that his fans were smart enough to see who was trying to target him. He said, “It simply depicts one’s thinking. People are telling me that they haven’t named anyone, and well, I haven’t taken anyone’s name either. It is just that fans are smart enough to know who is it aimed at and when I visited their post as well, they wrote things like ‘so called actor’ and well, I can understand things too since it has come a day after our post so it was pretty clear.”
