Aditya Chopra, along with Yash Raj Films, has announced an initiative whereby he will transfer INR 5,000 to every woman or senior daily employed person in the industry. It will also provide rations to families and distribute cooked meals in several areas of Mumbai to frontline workers.
Now the producer has decided to cancel YRF’s 50th anniversary celebration and donate the entire amount to COVID-19 aid for those affected by the pandemic. A report suggested that the production house had planned a major international event to commemorate 50 years of Yash Raj Films, but as the need arose, Chopra decided to donate the entire budget.
This generous contribution to the fight against COVID-19 will help many frontline workers and daily wagers survive this deadly second wave.
