Mumbai: Director Neeraj Ghaywan and Varun Grover, who were conferred with National Awards on Tuesday, say they will donate the prize money for relief work for distressed farmers in Maharashtra.

Ghaywan received the National Film Award for his first directorial 'Masaan' and the award for the best lyrics has been conferred on Grover for the song 'Moh moh ke dhaage' from the film 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha'.

"Thank you all for the wishes for the National Award. Me and Varun Grover have decided to donate our National Award prize money towards relief work for distressed farmers in Maharashtra," Ghaywan wrote on his official facebook account.

The director shared that the duo will together donate Rs.1 lakh.

"Out of the 1.25 Lakh prize money, I will donate 50,000. Together, me and Varun will donate one lakh rupees," he wrote.

"Yes, of course, it's a small amount and no contribution is enough, but my intent to make it public is to draw attention to the water and agrarian crisis in Maharashtra," he added.

Ghaywan hopes that other people get inspired to contribute towards the crises.

"Hope more people get inspired to contribute and, if not anything, at least become aware of the issues," Ghaywan wrote.
