COVID-19: Hrithik Roshan pledges support to out-of-work paparazzi

One of the industries affected by the coronavirus outbreak is the film industry. Many celebrities have come forward to help the daily wage workers of the industry. Now, actor Hrithik Roshan has come forward to support the paparazzi. He has reportedly donated money to help paparazzi as they do not come under any film association or trade union.

 
Viral Bhayani took to Instagram to make the announcement. He wrote, “In such dire straits, actor Hrithik Roshan on his own, came forward and supported the paps who hail from lower-middle-class families. I’m really grateful to Hrithik for helping us in our crisis time. Many other actors have come forward and supported the film industry, but since we do not belong to any film association or trade union - we could not get the benefit which many other leading actors have come forward and announced. #hrithikroshan.” While Dia Mirza dropped a heart on the post, Tisca Chopra called Hrithik’s gesture “superb”.
 
Recently, Hrithik Roshan also contributed to helping the daily wage workers. He contributed Rs 25 lakh to the Cine and TV Artistes’ Association (CINTAA) to help the 4,000 daily-wage artists. He is also working to facilitate the distribution of nutritious meals for those who have been severely affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
 
On the work front, Hrithik is looking forward to the release of his films Krrish 4 in 2020.

The entire world is right now in crisis, there was already the issue of downturn due to which there were salary cuts, jobs were at stake and media houses were shutting down. Now with this virus it has devastated all of us. I have a huge team on the ground which works tirelessly to capture the celebrities. But now with this crisis my only source income has stopped and it has become extremely difficult to keep my family as well as 15 plus families who were all supported on the income I generated through subscription of my pictures and the paid posts of my Instagram. In such dire straits actor Hrithik Roshan on his own came forward and supported the paps who hail from lower middle class families. I'm really grateful to Hrithik for helping us in our crisis time. Many other actors have come forward and supported the film industry, but since we do not belong to any film association or trade union - we could not get the benefit which many other leading actors have come forward and announced. #hrithikroshan
