Amidst the ongoing pandemic of coronavirus in India, several celebrities have come forward to help the daily wage workers of their respective industries and the film industry is no less. Joining the list of contributors in the time of crisis is now, actor Prakash Raj. We might have seen him playing the villainous roles many times, but his real-life deeds are truly appreciable.
The veteran actor took to Twitter to share the news that he has paid the salary of his staff till the month of May. Also, he informed that he is found a way to pay at least half of the fees to the daily wage workers of his upcoming three films, the shoot of which has been stopped.
Along with a picture, he wrote, “#JanathaCurfew .. what I did today .. let’s give back to life .. let’s stand together #justasking”.

Heartwarming, isn’t it?
While many people came out in their balconies to participate in PM Narendra Modi’s Janata Curfew clapping initiative, there were Indians who stepped out into the streets in large groups, chanting and clanging vessels amid coronavirus outbreak, putting themselves in the danger of being exposed to the virus.
Celebrities like Kriti Sanon, Gippy Grewal and Nia Sharma have strongly condemned the behaviour of such people who hit the streets in large groups on Sunday, clearly misunderstanding the concept of #5Baje5minute initiative.
Taking to Instagram story, Kriti wrote: “While I was feeling proud at the unity I saw at 5 p.m. , I came across some videos of people dancing on the roads in huge groups with thaali-chamach celebrating God knows what.”
“This is only gonna make it worse. The 5pm applaud was a part of the curfew to show our gratitude! From your windows/houses just for 5 minutes.”added the actress.
