Hollywood actor Drew Barrymore has shared a message for Indians battling the COVID-19 crisis.
In the video, the actor speaks about her love and deep-rooted connection with India. She also cites some positive news stories from India that caught her attention.
“This one's a special message to the people of India,” Barrymore says in the clip. “A lot of you guys already know of my deep-rooted connection with the country and how I've always loved India for its culture, its people and so much more! It truly holds a very special place in my heart. In my visits, I've met so many wonderful people who've truly inspired me as a person which propelled me to write a chapter in my book too.”
She continued, "Today, as we cope with the worldwide situation, my heart goes out to the people of India who're trying hard to hold it together. My sincere wishes and prayers to you to stay strong and believe that we will come out stronger together."
She mentions a news story about a 110-year-old COVID-19 survivor in India, and another on a man donating his entire life's savings towards relief.
“Countless people, celebrities and organisations coming together and pledging support, people starting food centres and relief groups – and this is truly the need of the hour. A small contribution could really help and make a giant difference, and even save a life! I’m doing my bit and urge you to do whatever is in your capacity.”
The video was recorded as part of The Drew Barrymore Show on Zee Café.
