After Sidharth Malhotra extended his help to the Bollywood dancers, Shahid Kapoor
to has decided to help 40 dancers from the industry. These background dancers survive on a contract basis and due to the recent crisis in the entertainment industry, they have no work and hence are facing a financial crisis. Shahid Kapoor has worked with a lot of dancers in his films and has had a soft corner towards the professional. One of the dancers, Raj Surani, revealed to a leading daily, "Shahid Kapoor recently transferred money to the bank accounts of dancers he has worked with. He has extended support to around 40 dancers and has stated that he will help them for the next 2-3 months.”
The Kabir Singh actor has helped 20 dancers from the Ahmed Dance troop and 20 from the Bosco dance troop. Raj added, "We shortlisted dancers from the days when he started his career with ‘Ishq Vishq’. It has been 17 years and they are in a bad condition, they may not be working right now. Apart from them we have even included those dancers who worked with him in ‘Dhating Naach’, ‘Shaandaar’ and ‘Agal Bagal’."
Many other Bollywood actors have come in support in these times of distress. Recently, Katrina Kaif
helped daily wage workers by contributing through her beauty brand 'Kay Beauty.' Actor Sonu Sood has been involved in multiple welfare actions like sending the migrants home, giving them money, supporting health care workers, etc.
