Shah Rukh Khan, who recently announced a bunch of initiatives to help fight the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, has also offered his and Gauri’s personal office to be turned into a quarantine facility in Mumbai. On Saturday morning, the official Twitter handle of BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) tweeted the news and thanked both Shah Rukh and his wife Gauri Khan for the gesture. “Stronger together. We thank Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan for offering their 4-storey personal office space to help expand our quarantine capacity equipped with essentials for quarantined children, women and elderly. Indeed a thoughtful and timely gesture! Anything for Mumbai. Na to corona!” read BMC’s tweet, which was re-shared by SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainment. Last year, Shah Rukh received an honorary Doctorate from University Of Law, London for philanthropy.

Netizens showered a whole lot of love to the actor, with tweets such as these flooding the Internet. “Shah Rukh Khan didn’t played Mohan Bhargava in Swades but the Shah Rukh Khan itself,” read a tweet while another added: “Another on point contribution. He is setting benchmark for serving the people.” A user also pointed out that it’s not a company office but it is Shah Rukh and Gauri’s personal office that’s been offered.
