'Laxmmi Bomb' director Raghava Lawrence expresses grief after 18 children and 3 staff members test COVID-19 positive at his orphanage


Choreographer, actor, and director Raghava Lawrence, who is directing Akshay Kumar's Laxxmi Bomb, has a charitable trust through which he is taking care of the education of a lot of underprivileged and abandoned kids. Unfortunately, in the latest instance, 21 persons living at Raghava's orphanage in Tamil Nadu were tested positive for COVID-19. 

Raghava sent out a strong statement on Twitter, to share the news. The actor-filmmaker shared that a week ago, some of the kids and staff at the orphanage were experiencing fever, and upon testing, they were diagnosed with the disease. This included 18 children and three members of the staff, including two of them specially-abled. Lawrence stated that he is extremely upset with the development, but was relieved that they were showing improvement after treatment. Their fever subsided and he was hoping for their tests to come negative soon, so that they can be discharged, he said.  Raghava also conveyed his gratitude to the officials like Ministers SP Velumani, Vijaya Bhaskar and Corporation Commissioner, among others. He urged all to pray for his kids, while hoping that the blessings of his charitable works help his children. 

He captioned his post as, "I Hope the service I do will save my kids. My thanks to Thiru.S.P Velumani, honourable minister of local administration @SPVelumanicbe" along with a photo of himself with the orphanage children.
