The covid-19 pandemic has shaken the whole world. Its ever-increasing impact has almost stopped normal life. However, even during these unprecedented times, there are many people who selflessly get out of their houses and help people who were most affected by this pandemic.
To acknowledge the efforts and honor the sacrifices made by these real heroes, Royal Challengers Bangalore - one of the IPL teams, has come up with a unique idea to pay tribute to the covid heroes
. RCB team has been wearing a tribute jersey with the message "My Covid Heroes" both during training and matches for the entire tournament through #MyCovidHeroes initiatives.
Bigg Boss 13 fame, Shehnaz Kaur Gill is one of the many people who are supporting the initiative. Shehnaz shared the RCB jersey with the name of her brother, Shehbaz along with My Covid Heroes written on it, on Instagram. She was tagged by her dear friend, Sidharth Shukla to take up the challenge.
"Hey! @realsidharthshukla thanks for tagging me to share my Real Challenger Story. I would like to #RaiseAToast to my brother Shehbaz @badeshashehbaz who stood by me when hit the worst pandemic situation. I was shooting when covid 19 outbreak took a toll on the nation. My brother stepped up like a real challenger, he took care of me and everything around to make me comfortable", Shehnaz wrote on Instagram.
"I will always be grateful to him for being the constant pillar in the most difficult times.
