Namrata Sells MF’s Gaja Gamini For Social Cause
Namrata Shirodkar Mahesh Babu’s wife believes in selling her old stuff in order to raise money for destitute children. While many celebrities are associated with social causes and charity work. Some donate funds from their purse, while others organize shows or other events to collect funds to support charity. Similarly, some of them make a huge hue and cry about their activities while others silently go about their work. But Namrata Shirodkar falls into the later category. While it is a good effort, those who know Namrata closely say that she is quite tight-fisted when it comes to money. Some feel she can easily donate lakhs of rupees from her personal funds. Apparently, she counts every single penny before paying her household staff. So, they say she will never give her money. Late painter MF Hussain presented a painting to her sister Shilpa Shirodkar during the making of Gaja Gamini. Recently, Namrata decided to sell that painting. Namrata intends to donate all the mon ey for charity. Since Hussain painting will surely fetch her princely amount. industry insiders feel that Mahesh and his wife are rich enough to donate for causes close to their hearts. But she is happy with her plan.
