One such project has been financed by us and work is in progress. This project is jayas brainchild and she initiated.

Dr Mandke, a maharashtrian and a brilliant heart surgeon, died suddenly and unexpectedly, ironically of a heart attack and ironically, in the middle of putting up a 400 bed Hospital in lokhandwala in the suburbs of Mumbai north. His wife wanted his dream to be fulfilled and I spoke to my friend Mr Anil Ambani to help fund its completion. You will be happy to know he followed my request and the hospital shall soon be nearing completion and get operative a most welcome and desired facility in this vast and Hospital starved metropolis.

When the marathi film Swaas was selected for the Oscars and the producers did not have money to go to los Angeles to promote the film I contributed to their expenses by giving them 11 lakh rupees. In my production company ab corp we have been encouraging Marathi talent and filmmakers.
