Fadnavis on Monday tweeted a photograph of the couple handing over the cheque to the minister.

"Thank you Riteish and Genelia Deshmukh for the contribution of Rs 25,00,000/- (Rs 25 lakh) towards CM Relief Fund for Maharashtra floods," Fadnavis wrote.

The gigantic Koyna Dam, with its reservoir spread across 890sqkm and a capacity of 100 TMC, was filled up by half or more than 50 TMC in only nine days this year.

A staggering 3.78 lakh people have been shifted to 432 temporary relief camps set up by the Maharashtra government in flood-hit Sangli, Kolhapur and Satara districts.
