The team that built the movie Baahubali — The Conclusion has tied with Make-A-Wish India to raise funds on the crowdfunding platform Fueladream.com. The six-week campaign has set a target to raise ₹500,000 in the next six weeks.

The non-governmental organisation (NGO) works to help children down with life-threatening diseases by realising their last wishes.

This includes catching up with a celebrity or donning a cop’s role for a day.

“The film crew has agreed to join the initiative that is aimed at bringing change in the lives of children who are suffering from terminal illness.

Bengaluru-based crowdfunding platform Fueladream launched the campaign inviting people to contribute their part,” a press release has said.

This unique innovation will be promoted through social media by all the three partners –Make-A-Wish India, Fueladream and Bahubali in the next few weeks.

“We want our fans to make a difference to the lives of these kids by funding the initiative,” Shobu Yarlagadda, the producer of Bahubali 2 –The Conclusion, said. Using the proceeds, the NGO would buy a bicycle, a doll house and a mobile phone to the kids. Some of them, if they like, can even visit sets of films like Baahubali and can direct a film for a day.

“With support from Fueladream, we are confident of getting support to our cause in a big way and fulfil 10,000 wishes a year,” Deepak S Bhatia, the Chief Executive Officer of Make-A-Wish India, said.

The campaign on the crowdfunding platform would last till the end of April this year.
