Actor Pawan Kalyan, who loves to brandish guns of different kinds in his movies, on Thursday came to the rescue of a real shooter, C Rekha. The girl from Anantapur, who is among the top 15 shooters in the country, was pleasantly surprised when the star handed a cheque for Rs 5 lakh to her on the sets of his upcoming film 'Cameraman Ganga Tho Rambabu'.

“I want to play in the Olympics. But this sport is expensive. Even if one has talent, without financial support, it all goes in vain. I had approached Pawan Kalyan. As soon as he heard me, he not only offered financial support but also instilled confidence in me,” said Rekha who has represented Andhra Pradesh in 50 m and 10 m air rifle events in several national championships.
