Arjun Kapoor has been trying his best to help as many people in need as possible. Over the weekend, he went on a virtual date with five lucky winners to raise funds for daily wage earners of India who are currently earning no income at all due to the pandemic. 

He did this exercise through his sister Anshula Kapoor’s online fundraising platform, Fankind. He raised enough funds to feed the families of 300 daily wage earners for a month.

The Panipat actor confirms, “Coronavirus has thrown us all into unchartered territory. I’m grateful to all my fans that my 30 minute virtual date with five lucky winners for Anshula’s Fankind has raised enough funds to feed many families. Along with that, I have also extended some additional support to GiveIndia and this collective fund will support the families of these daily wage earners for a month. I felt happy to raise their moral and connect with people outside my circle and instill hope and faith within them. We must do our best in whatever way we can, to help everyone triumph over this.”

He added, “Fankind, GiveIndia and I have come together to provide cash in hand for these daily wage workers in serious need. GiveIndia has identified more than 60 thousand families across India that need our help. All you have to do is log on to fankind.org/arjun and donate. Even Rs 100 will make a huge difference. Your entire donation amount will go in the hands of these people in need.”

The 34-year-old actor has also already extended his support to the PM-CARES Fund, Maharashtra Chief Minister’s Relief Fund, The Wishing Factory and Bollywood’s Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE).

On the work front, Arjun currently awaits the release of his next film Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar which stars his Ishaqzaade co-star Parineeti Chopra.
