Allu Sirish is one such actor in the South, who is promoting the ‘Go Local, For Vocal’ initiative. Ever since the Chinese government attacked Indian soldiers, the Indian government banned Chinese products and urged everyone to use only ‘Made in India’ products.
Allu Sirish has been taking up this initiative and encouraging all his co actors to use Indian products to boost the National economy. On Independence day, Allu Sirish gifted a hamper of all Indian products to his close friends from industry like his brother Allu Arjun, Rakul Preet Singh, Rana Daggubati, Sai Dharam Tej and many more.
Speaking to a leading daily about this initiative, Allu Sirish said, “I realized during the early days of the pandemic that India is going to lose a lot of money and jobs during the lockdown. I wanted to help and contribute but didn’t know how. I have seen our Commerce & Industry minister Piyush Goyal appealing to us Indians at various platforms to “go local” and use more Indian made products to support the country and make our economy stronger (sic.)”
On the note on the hamper, Sirish wrote, “The ongoing Covid pandemic has changed the way we need to look at things. This is time for us to support our country by using more local brands. In a globalised world, it’s impractical for us to buy ONLY Indian brands. But I request you to make a conscious effort to use MORE Indian brands. It’s also the time for us to break the myth that it isn’t cool to use Indian brands by being VOCAL about our usage. Hope you enjoy your hamper with the world class Indian products. This Independence Day lets “Go Local, Be Vocal” Jai Hind!”
On the work front, Sirish was last seen in the Telugu film ABCD: American Born Confused Desi, directed by Sanjeev Reddy.
