Talking about coming forward to help people who are in dire need of oxygen cylinders amid the coronavirus, Harshvardhan Rane told Hindustan Times that he "doesn't come from a background where he could write huge checks" but he wanted to help people save lives of themselves and their loved ones so he decided to sell his motorcycle in exchange of oxygen concentrators.

"I'd just look at it, parked - like everything right now in my life looks like. I felt it could be used for something or someone. I don't come from a background where I could just write huge cheques. As of now, at my stage, I only look at things like this. I feel horrible if something is kept next to me, and someone isn't able to breathe," Harshvardhan told Hindustan Times and added: "I was going through this for the past few weeks, and that made me think of letting this motorcycle become oxygen for somebody."

Record daily spike in COVID cases have crippled the country's healthcare system and have left thousands without oxygen cylinders, hospital beds and proper medical facilities, resulting in brutal spike in deaths by COVID.

Harshvardhan Rane is known for his performances in south films such as Naa Ishtam, Prema Ishq Kaadhal, Anaamika, Avunu 2 and Kavacham. He debuted in Bollywood with 2016 film Sanam Teri Kasam and was last seen in Taish.
