Actress Zareen Khan is raising funds for her former tutor who is undergoing treatment for partial paralysis and brain damage.
According to a source, Zareen's former teacher, Rubina Ahmed, had a stroke but was unable to get timely treatment, leaving her partially paralysed and brain damaged.
The cost of the treatment is over Rs 8 lakh, a sum that her family is struggling to pay.
In an interaction, the actress said, “Rubina Ahmed is dear to me as she was my tuition teacher during my school days. This year has been difficult on all of us due to the pandemic impacting everyone's work and finances including mine.”
Zareen added, “However, I have donated as per my capacity, but there's still a huge amount void so I urge people to come forward and help this helpless family in their time of need.”
As for work, earlier this month, she announced that she will be seen in a Punjabi project titled ‘Patake Painge’ diected by Smeep Kang.
