Virat Kohli in the video said that, "We are going through tough times and all of us need to unite and save as many people as possible. Anushka and I have been shocked to see the human suffering since last year. We are starting a fundraiser with the confidence that we will be able to raise funds to help the people who are in need. We are confident that people will come forward to support those who need our help. We are in this together and we shall overcome this."

All of a sudden people have started to praise #ViratKohli and #AnushkaSharma for donating. Each of the players I know have donated and have helped in every way possible. You don’t need social media gratification. They have silently contributed and have always made a diff. 1/2— Boria Majumdar (@BoriaMajumdar) May 7, 2021
