Hrithik Roshan financially helps Cine & TV Artists with their Families

Hrithik Roshan is coming forward to help the people in the midst of the epidemic. Bollywood stars are also fighting unitedly against the coronavirus. At the same time, people affected by this are coming forward to help. After distributing the N95 and FF3 masks and deciding to provide food to the people, laborers, cine, TV Artists and deprived people of old age homes across India, Hrithik Roshan has come forward to help the photojournalists associated with the film industry. The actor has now contributed Rs 25 lakh to the Cine and TV Artistes’ Association (CINTAA) to help the 4,000 daily-wage artists who come under its purview.

Amit Behl senior joint secretary and chairperson, outreach committee, CINTAA, as saying, 'A few days ago, KWAN, the talent management company that handles Hrithik, asked for our account details and promptly transferred Rs 25 lakh to our sister concern, Cine Artiste Welfare Trust [CAWT]. We will start distributing the money among the daily wagers, with those living hand-to-mouth being our top priority.'

The actor is also helping facilitate 1.2 lakh nutritious meals for those who have been severely impacted due to the government imposed lockdown amid COVID-19 outbreak in the country. The Super 30 actor has empowered the NGO Akshaya Patra which is working on the ground to ensure old age homes, daily wage laborers, and low-income groups across India get nutritious cooked meals in these tough times. Viral Bhayani is a Mumbai-based photographer and handles a large team. The lockdown implemented in the country has also affected the work of these photojournalists. For this reason, there has been a huge loss in their income. Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan has helped them by giving a secret donation to these photojournalists. Shahrukh Khan's wife Gauri Khan also distributed 95,000 food packets among the poor

The entire world is right now in crisis, there was already the issue of downturn due to which there were salary cuts, jobs were at stake and media houses were shutting down. Now with this virus it has devastated all of us. I have a huge team on the ground which works tirelessly to capture the celebrities. But now with this crisis my only source income has stopped and it has become extremely difficult to keep my family as well as 15 plus families who were all supported on the income I generated through subscription of my pictures and the paid posts of my Instagram. In such dire straits actor Hrithik Roshan on his own came forward and supported the paps who hail from lower middle class families. I'm really grateful to Hrithik for helping us in our crisis time. Many other actors have come forward and supported the film industry, but since we do not belong to any film association or trade union - we could not get the benefit which many other leading actors have come forward and announced. 🙏 #hrithikroshan

Viral Bhayani has written a thank-you letter to him with a photo of Hrithik Roshan. In this letter, Viral writes that the whole country is in a difficult phase at this time. This is affecting the economy, leading to wage cuts, jobs and media houses being shut down. This coronavirus has affected all of us badly. I have a large team that clicks pictures of celebs without wearying them, but the problem caused my source of earnings to be closed and it became very difficult for me to help more than 15 families, Which depends on the salary given by me.

I make money by generating revenue from my photos and I earn from paid Instagram photos. In this way, actor Hrithik Roshan came forward and he has helped us a lot.
