The 36-year-old actor, who has acted in several Tamil and Telugu films, besides a few Bollywood films (including Rang De Basanti), is working with Balaji Patturaj, an Indian radio jockey and comedian.
“When Siddharth and I got together initially, we really didn’t expect this kind of a response. There are 10, 000 to 15, 000 people coming every day now to the Big FM (the radio channel he works for) office wanting to volunteer. And it’s not just the youngsters who use Facebook or Twitter. There are 70-year-old grandfathers and retired people coming to volunteer, ” Balaji told the DNA newspaper.
We are personally handling over 20 trucks to Cuddalore. Breaking them up into small loads. Targeting worst affected first. Rest assured.
— Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth)
Urgent. Women's undergarments are bring requested in all areas. Sanitary napkins are in good supply. Please donate undergarments in bulk.
Siddharth, who lost his house, three studios, an office, and three cars in the Chennai floods, told television channel NDTV that it was probably his personal loss that motivated him to help those in need. “What I have seen in the last five days looks like what we see in the Hollywood disaster films. I have never seen something of this sort in my entire life, ” he said.
Here is Siddharth’s interview to NDTV from Cuddalore—a town around 200 kilometres from Chennai—where the actor went with his team for relief work:
“Siddharth and I don’t plan to go back to our respective professions next week. #ChennaiMicro is not a movement we will give up now. We are in it for the long-term. We will work now to ensure that people are rehabilitated—that’s our responsibility and commitment, ” Balaji said. “If a milkman has lost ten cows in the rains, it means he has lost his livelihood. We need to ensure people get back their livelihood.”
Besides the #ChennaiMicro team, another prominent Tamil film actor, Dhanush, has been involved in mobilising food and medical aid through Twitter.
Our Doctors team heading to soolaipallam near mgr nagar and nessapaakkam. I request the help nd cooperation of area volunteers.

Prominent celebrities from the south Indian states of Karnataka and Telangana have also started drives to help Tamil Nadu.
On Dec. 5, actress-turned-politician Ramya sent a truck filled with food, water and other essential commodities from her residence in Bengaluru to Chennai, according to the Times of India newspaper.
Telugu film stars—including Rana Daggubati, Nani, Samantha, Allu Arjun, Kajal Aggarwal, Allari Naresh, Rakul Preet, Lakshmi Manchu, Navdeep, and Madhu Shalini—have come together to start a movement called #ManaMadrasKosam to send supplies from Hyderabad to different parts of Tamil Nadu. Mana Madras Kosam is Telugu for “for our Madras.”
The heroic efforts of actors have naturally impressed fans who are now calling them “Chennai heroes.” And that’s a title that should not be taken lightly—Tamil Nadu is known to worship its movie stars.What are the president's powers?
