Amaal Mallik turns philanthropist, donates an ambulance

MUMBAI: Having created a name for himself as being the youngest successful music composer in Bollywood, Amaal Mallik has now also become a philanthropist.

The music composer donated a fully-equipped ambulance worth 30 lakh to Sujoy Hospital on the occasion of the Lions club SOL treasure hunt programme in Mumbai. Speaking about his association with the initiative, Amaal said ôAmidst all we do in our day to day life, the one major occasion of urgency arises when we have to save a life. Getting a patient in need, to the hospital, is probably the most intensely urgent moment In time and makes me feel the need of having a well-equipped vehicle to be doing that. Ambulances aren't mere cars that offer a pickup and drop service to people. They also act as the Hospital itself until the patient is reached there. The necessary equipment needed in case of an emergency must be available in its prime quality to the patient so that we can save a life and so I chose the initiative to do so. This is probably just a drop in the Ocean but I'll look to do my bit in the future too.ö

Furthermore, commenting on something that the singer strongly believes, he said, ôAnother thing one feels like throwing light upon is the mere moral gesture of letting an Ambulance pass before you do, simply because it has someone's life at stake. No work or appointment of any kind should find its way above a person's life. Our society is in need of this basic ethic too. I support this cause as I believe life is a gift and even the tiniest of contribution to helping it restore will go a long way. I believe not just me, but everyone must step forward and do the needful, in their own way.ö

Amaal, who was accompanied by his father Daboo Malik also tweeted a video of the event.

The programme was held on 27 May 2018 with intent to bring together the local residents. While the game commenced at Windsor Building, near Mega Mall in Oshiwara, it was concluded at Club Millennium, Juhu.

Lions Club India has been associated with various charities and donations across the country.

On the career front, Amaal has another big upcoming project in his hand in the form of the Ranbir Kapoor starrer, Sanju. Amaal will be remaking the famous iconic song, Kya Yahi Pyar Hai from the film, Rocky. The original song was sung by Kishore Kumar.
