Superstar Hrithik Roshan has donated 20 lakhs to the Association of Film and Television Artists (CINTAA) to help artists who have suffered financially as a result of the second wave of the Coronavirus Pandemic. CINTAA Secretary General Amit Behl has earned a living as a day-to-day artist working in film, television and web shows in the struggle to make a living today due to the forced lockdown of COVID-19.
A portion of the amount received by Behl will be transferred directly to the artist’s bank accounts in 2000, while the remainder will be used to acquire ration kits and arrange vaccine collection.
“More than 2,000 members will benefit as the money is transferred to their accounts. In addition, the funds will also be used to provide ration kits and collect vaccines,” he told PTI.
Behl revealed that Roshan also made a 25 lakh donation in 2020.
Not only Roshan, actress Vicky Kaushal donated 2.5 lakhs, and Flora Sainik donated 25,000. He added that TV star Sakshi Tanwar has also offered support. The body has a total of more than 10,000 members in India and around the world.
Speaking of Hrithik’s professional life, Hrithik has taken to the ropes as the head of the Indian adaptation of the popular English series “The Night Manager”. The actor will try the Indian version of the character Jonathan Pine in the original 2016 limited series based on John Le Carre’s 1993 novel, which Tom Hiddleston tried. The Indian adaptation will soon start filming.
