Coronavirus: Bollywood celebs and Film makers pledge to help daily wage workers

Filmmakers and actors, including Karan Johar, Taapsee Pannu and Ayushmann Khurrana, have pledged their support to a new initiative aimed at supporting the daily wage-earners who have been severely affected by the lockdown imposed to combat coronavirus. The country is witnessing a 21-day lockdown, as announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to contain the spread of the virus, which has claimed the lives of over 20,000 people globally. The initiative, I Stand With Humanity, started by organisations — the International Association for Human Values, the Art of Living Foundation and the Indian Film and TV Industry, will provide families of daily wage workers with 10 days of essential food supplies. “I pledge to contribute and support this initiative! This is a situation that needs all our help, love, care and support,” Karan posted on Twitter. Taapsee said everyone must come forward to help the daily wage workers. “This one for the daily wage workers. Because we need to do our bit for the ones who work with/for us. If not corona, lack of basic food might take them down. Let’s help them to get through this,” the actor wrote.
