It came as no big surprise to know that Hrithik Roshan came forward with immediate financial help for an Indian family in the US. Hrithik came to know about the distressed family which needed funds for the funeral of a deceased member, through his pal Kunal Kapoor's involvement with KETTO, a crowd-funding charitable organization. Hrithik immediately had Rs. 5 lakhs transferred to the family's account.
Hrithik is no stranger to philanthropy. A few months ago he quietly donated Rs. 5 lakhs to 'Habitat India'. In December 2015, he donated Rs. 25 lakhs to the Chennai flood relief. What makes him come forward repeatedly with financial aid for the needy?
Hrithik Roshan ponders for a minute and replies, "Empathy. I wonder why people only help others when something impacts them personally. Having means to help and not helping is a sign of an insecure soul."
