Salman Khan is continuing to help those in need during this lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The actor, who has been financially aiding daily wage workers, has started a food donation drive at Mumbai auditoriums for theatre artists.
Kanal, who is coordinating the drive on behalf of Khan, along with Shiv Sena corporator Amey Ghole, informs that they intend to make it a daily affair with the two trucks covering different parts of Mumbai. He says, “We started the initiative when we heard about the plight of the artistes and technicians of Shri Shivaji Mandir Natyagruha. I reached out to Salman Khan bhai who immediately agreed to help us.
Each ration kit contains five kilos of rice and wheat flour, vegetables, oil, salt, spices and tea powder. We reached out to 186 workers on the first day and hope to extend help to other theatre artistes through them. We are practising safety measures while distributing the kits.”
