Jr NTR’s team also confirmed to Hindustan Times that the actor made a sizeable donation. A source close to the actor said, “It’s true that Tarak made this donation ahead of his birthday. He made it in his mother (Shalini), wife (Lakshmi Pranathi) and children’s (Abhay, Barghav) names. He doesn’t like to publicise about his philanthropy much. People only found out because fans from East Godavari shared pictures online.”
