Bollywood actress Vaani Kapoor will go on a virtual date to raise money for daily wage earners amid the COVID-19 lockdown.
"As human beings, we will need to come forward and support as many people as possible in need due to the coronavirus pandemic in our country. I'm doing my bit to support the daily wage earners of our country and their families who are in dire situations given the lockdown," Vaani said.
Five winners will get a chance to meet Vaani virtually. For the effort, Vaani has teamed up with actor Arjun Kapoor's sister Anshula's online fundraising platform, Fankind.
