The Covid-19 pandemic has affected people from all walks of life. In the entertainment industry, the daily-wage earners and workers of the film industry suffered major loss of livelihood during the first and second wave of Covid-19.
To help them, Bollywood star Salman Khan has honoured his commitment to Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) by sending Rs 1500 to various workers and members of the organisation. The actor was among many celebrities who helped out cine workers during the first wave of the pandemic.
Talking about Salman’s contribution to Times of India, FWICE president BN Tiwari said, “Salman Khan is one of the large-hearted actors of Bollywood who has continued to help us whenever we need any support. He had helped our members in the first lockdown too we are grateful to him. He has told us that he will continue to help our workers in the future too."
Tiwari also thanked other members of the film industry, who came out and supported cine workers. Producers Guild of India and other production houses also helped FWICE members. “We are eternally grateful to the film industry coming in support of its fraternity," he said.
Last year, Salman Khan’s organisation Being Human had lent their support to 25,000 members of FWICE who were in urgent requirement of funds. Salman also recently distributed food packets to frontline workers. He also helped daily wage workers by sending Rs 3000 to their bank accounts.
On the work front, Salman will be next seen in Mahesh Manjrekar’s Antim: The Final Truth with brother-in-law Aayush Sharma. He also has Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali in the pipe-line.
