Cover Story Entertainment Press Release

In a world where individual pursuits and personal ambitions are often counted as top priorities, Geetanjali Mishra, currently portraying Rajesh in &TV’s Happu Ki Ultan Paltan, stands out as a shining example of selflessness. Hailing from a background of modest means, Geetanjali Mishra has not only achieved success as an actor but has also chosen to utilize her prosperity for a greater purpose by donating her savings of ten years to help people in need.


Talking about her commitment to social responsibility, Geetanjali Mishra shares, “I believe there is inherent beauty in the act of contributing to the well-being of society. Being responsible towards society prompts me to ponder what I can achieve individually and how my actions can ripple through the community, sparking positive change. During the peak of the covid crisis, my domestic helper approached me for assistance, expressing her struggle to make ends meet. In response, I stepped up and provided her with essential supplies for the next few months as ‘charity begins at home’. Through her, I discovered that many families in her community were also grappling with daily sustenance challenges. Motivated by this realization, I committed to supporting these families by supplying comprehensive ration kits, including staples like rice, dal, pulses, salt, sugar, and biscuits, along with hygiene items such as soap, sanitizers, masks, and more. I made sure to adhere to all safety protocols and measures to ensure the well-being of everyone involved. Despite the challenging circumstances, I remained determined to do whatever was within my means to aid those in need, irrespective of their location. It was a demanding period, but the opportunity to make a positive impact on people’s lives was a driving force that kept me going. She further adds, “My focus was on meeting people’s essential needs rather than providing financial assistance. In different states, I utilized various online platforms to collaborate in delivering ration kits, investing nearly 25 lakhs from my hard-earned savings of a decade. Throughout this philanthropic journey, I have always remembered ‘zameen pe rehke kamaya hai, aaj logo ki zaroorat hai, paise vapas jama karlenge aur Uparwale ke CCTV mai sab capture hota hai’. This sentiment guided my approach as I channeled my resources towards fulfilling immediate necessities rather than just offering financial support.”
