Mumbai/IBNS: Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif on Monday pledged to contribute to PM Cares Fund and Maharashtra Chief Minister's Relief Fund to help to fight against the deadly COVID-19.

Kaif wrote on Instagram, "I pledge to donate to the PM CARES fund and the Chief Minister's Relief Fund Maharashtra. Heartbreaking to see the hardship and suffering this pandemic has unleashed in the world."
