While everyone is contributing toward PM Covid-19 fund relief, Salman Khan decided to help 25,000 daily wage workers from the film industry in the wake of the national lockdown.
According to reports, Salman via his Being Human Foundation reached out to their organisation to help the workers, "Salman's Being Human Foundation has come forward to help daily wage workers. They called us three days ago. We have about 5 lakh workers out of which 25,000 are in dire need of financial help. Being Human Foundation said they will take care of these workers on their own. They have asked for account details of these 25,000 workers as they want to ensure that money reaches them directly."
"The remaining 4,75,000 workers can survive for about a month. We already have huge ration packets for all the workers but unfortunately due to lockdown, they are not able to come here to collect it. We are thinking of ways how to reach out to them," he added.
Bollywood celebs like Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar, Kartik Aaryan,Taapsee Pannu, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor among others pledged their support to COVID-19 fund relief.
