Star India, Disney+Hotstar contribute to fight against COVID-19

Star India and Disney+Hotstar have come forward in aid of the city that has been affected the most by the COVID-19 pandemic in India.
Country’s leading multi-genre broadcaster Star India and its OTT arm Disney+Hotstar have joined hands with a non-Government organisation Project Mumbai to distribute personal protection equipment to corona-warriors in the business capital of India.

The Walt Disney Group media house has donated two lakh personal protection equipment (PPE) kits to the Brihnmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and another 10,000 khakhi-coloured PPE kits to the Mumbai police.

BMC, at its official twitter handle @mybmc, has extended thanks to The Walt Disney Company Asia Pacific president and Star India chairman Uday Shankar and Project Mumbai founder CEO Shishir Joshi.

“Uday Shankar was very keen to do something for Mumbai. Star has its base prominently in Mumbai. He himself has lived in Mumbai for a longer period of time. He asked us what needs to be done. We told him that doctors need to be helped out. They need PPE,” Joshi is quoted as saying by

Project Mumbai is also providing meals to 2,000 doctors and 70,000 homeless people every day.

With over 14,000 confirmed novel coronavirus cases and more than 500 deaths, Mumbai has been India’s worst-hit city by COVID-19.
