ISLAMABAD: Katrina Kaif is the first actress who has come out and supported the Bollywood background dancers. Katrina Kaif has helped 100 dancers by directly transferring money into their account. And it is noteworthy to know that there are quite a few dancers who are utilising the amount transferred by the actress to stand on their own feet and also sustain themselves till they get back on the sets.
Some dancers have used the money as the principal amount to start small businesses like selling vegetables, eggs and snacks counters on the roadside, and tiffin service. Raj Surani of Octopus Entertainment, who has been motivating the dancers to become self-reliant in these trying times, said that he is grateful to Katrina Kaif who has come forward to help the dancers. He said, “The dancers have utilised the money transferred by Katrina to start small businesses like tiffin services, beauty services and selling homemade chocolates.”
A senior dancer, Hetal, travels all the way to the APMC market to buy vegetables and has started selling it online to residential societies. Hetal says, “I am taking the risk of my life as I leave at 3 am in the morning leaving my children alone to buy vegetables and then come back and sell vegetables to locals.”
