Like all Malayalis, Kalyani Priyadarshan too is celebrating Onam today. However, the ‘Hero’ actress is doing it with a purpose. She has dedicated the specal day to nurses, who are waging a spirited battle with Covid-19 from the frontline.
Sharing a picture of herself in a saree and sitting next to her Pookolam on her social media page, Kalyani wrote, “I’ve always been taught that Onam is about sharing happiness and being thankful for our blessings.”
She added: “This year, I am extremely thankful to all the nurses, who have worked non-stop to give selfless care, allowing countless COVID patients to be back home for Onam.”
“So I feel proud to dedicate my Onam Pookolam to our nurses- for their love, care & support through this pandemic and always. I hope you guys will also join me in this small gesture to show our thanks,” added Kalyani, who is the daughter of filmmaker Priyadarshan and actress Lissy. Kalyani is currently part of STR aka Simbu-starrer ‘Maanaadu’ and other projects.
