After Allu Arjun and Mahesh Babu, popular Telugu actors Rana Daggubati, Nani and Allari Naresh have come together to help the people of Tamil Nadu who have been battered by unprecedented rains and floods.

While most stars have already contributed through donations, Rana and his team are appealing to people of Hyderabad to come forward and help the victims of rain-affected city and other parts of the state.

“In solidarity with the people of Chennai and TN affected by the floods, a few of Telugu cinema’s actors have come together and formed an initiative called ‘Mana Madras Kosam’. We would contribute financially, raise funds and ensure proper relief work is being carried on ground,” Rana posted on his Twitter page.

Rana’s family-owned Ramanaidu Studios has become the drop point for relief essentials which are packed and trucked to the city.

On Sunday, these stars -- including Lakshmi Manchu, Allu Sirish, Madhu Shalini and Nikhil Siddhartha among others -- will visit various malls in Hyderabad to collect money.

“We have networked with several NGOs and volunteers on ground to help us in this effort. In this regard, some of us would visit various malls to create awareness and raise funds. Please be there and contribute generously to help us with this initiative,” he said.
