During the pandemic, several celebs came out to help needy people with food, arranging for transport or in cash. Everyone did what they could afford to do. One of the celebs was TV actor Gurmeet Choudhary who with his team supported several families and homeless people with food and medical help. For these philanthropic deeds, the actor was recently awarded by the Governor of Maharashtra Bhagat Singh Koshyari. The event took place at the Raj Bhavan where the actor was invited to collect his award. Gurmeet took to Instagram to share the details of the event with a picture of him with the Governor.
The post was captioned, “This award is really special to me and my team as our relentless efforts in creating a difference have been recognised. I would like to give the full credits to my team- our Covid warriors who have given their heart and soul to this cause. It wouldn’t have been possible without their continuous support. I have been receiving awards for my work in films and television but this is the first time I have received an award for a good deed and it’s extremely special to me.”

The actors’ wife Debina Bonnerjee was also felicitated at the event for being the best social media influencer. Debina said, “I thank everyone for giving me this honour. Most importantly, I thank my social media family who have always been there for me and this one is for them. Your followers are your family and I am blessed to have so many of them across the globe who are always ready to help. I thank the prestigious jury for giving me this award.”
