'Jaanbaaz' on Star News to feature Suniel Shetty bravery story

In this week's "Jaanbaaz" STAR News features three sensational stories, one of Suniel Shetty's - the 'brave' Bollywood actor - organization that helped Mumbaikars during the recent flooding that nearly drowned the city, the other of a young lad who did not think twice and risked his life to chase after robbers who looted a person in broad daylight. The third story is of a girl who has been working consistently and dedicatedly towards making public places disabled-friendly.

H20 has been instrumental in saving lives of three and half thousand people during recent rains and floods in Mumbai. Bollywood Actor Suniel Shetty is actively involved with the organisation. Volunteers from H2O are always ready to lend a helping hand during times of crisis.

Story from Mathura (Physical Bravery)

Rahul is a student from Mathura. He is a hero for his colleagues and friends. On the day of the incidence when three robbers ran after looting a person, Rahul bravely followed the robbers and got hold one of them and handed him to the police. A bullet had hit Rahul and he was bed ridden for four months.

Story from Bhopal (Social Bravery), Rajasthan

Arushi has been working to make public places disabled-friendly. Cyber caf?, hotels, banks? Arushi has been working with all these to make life better for physically challenged people. Her sincere efforts have benefited children the most with textbooks available in braille, audio tapes designed as per school syllabus. Veteran filmmaker Gulzar has also authorised Arushi to publish fifteen of his books in Braille.
