Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda on Monday, appealed to people to help an old farmer selling flowerpots in Bengaluru’s Sarakki Signal in the harsh weather. The old man with the help of RWA has now received a canopy umbrella.
Bengaluru: A photograph of an aged farmer selling flowerpots in the hot sun and sudden rainfalls, caught the eye of Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda who, on Monday, appealed to people to help the farmer.
The plight of the old man came to light when a twitter handle IMShubham tweeted on Monday morning tagging a few actors and requesting them support to Revana Siddappa, an old man who sells plants at Kanakapura Road near Sarakki Signal in Karnataka.
The tweet mentioned that Siddappa sells these plants at Rs 10 to Rs 30 while holding an umbrella with one hand to protect himself from sunlight.
Seeing this tweet, actor Randeep Hooda through his twitter handle, appealed saying “Hey Bangalore.. do show some love.. he sits in front of Wular Fashion factory, JP Nagar, Sarakki Signal, Kanakapura Road, Bangalore”.

By Monday afternoon a resident welfare association (RWA), came out and donated the old man a canopy umbrella to provide him the shade and also assured him that they would soon be providing a table and a chair to sit.
