Pavala Symala's plight has moved Megastar Chiranjeevi, who has sent his team to call on the aged artist. After a video of Syamala appealing for financial contributions to help her tide over the present crisis, the 'Sye Raa' actor responded with kindness.
Chiru has given more than Rs 1 lakh. This comes in addition to the 'Acharya' actor moving the needle on Syamala's eligibility to receive Rs 6,000 pension every month from the Movie Artists' Association.
Syamala has profusely thanked Chiru for the timely help. "This gesture is so sweet. A couple of years ago, his daughter Sreeja visited me and gave me Rs 2 lakh. It left me touched. And today, this is one more gesture from Chiranjeevi garu. I will never forget this," Syamala said.
