Venky, Suresh Babu & Rana donate 

The Daggubatis have now donated Rs 1 Cr for the well-being of cine and healthcare workers.  Venkatesh, his elder brother and producer D Suresh Babu, and 'Aranya' and 'Virata Parvam' actor Rana Daggubati have made the monetary contribution keeping in mind the difficulties of the poor workers.  

"The ongoing lockdown is affecting the low-income groups in the film industry.  With theatres not running, the repercussions are severe.  On their part, healthcare workers are rendering selfless services as frontline staff," a statement from the Daggubatis says.

If Suresh Babu is producing a few small movies and Gunasekhar's big-budgeted 'Hiranya Kashyapa', Venky is doing 'Naarappa', the Telugu remake of 'Asuran' (Tamil).  Rana's 'Aranya' will release once theatres are opened.
