Chiranjeevi had set up the Corona Crisis Charity last year to help people in need. Many Telugu celebrities came forward to donate money to the charity.

The superstar took to his Twitter handle to share a video where he announced a free vaccine drive will commence from April 22. He urged all cinema workers and journalists above the age of 45 to get vaccinated and to bring their spouse as well if they are eligible. The vaccine drive will continue for a month.

Last year, Chiranjeevi had donated Rs 1 crore to the relief fund to help daily wage workers of the Telugu film industry. "The lockdown situation, while mandatory to deal with the coronavirus, also adversely impacts the lives of daily wage workers and lower income groups in the country including Telugu film industry. Keeping this in mind, I am donating ₹1 crore for providing relief to the film workers,” Chiranjeevi had tweeted.

Meanwhile, the country will start vaccinating citizens above the age of 18 starting May 1.
