After Rohit Shetty, Hrithik Roshan Extends Financial Support To Out-Of-Work Paparazzi Amid Coronavirus Crisis
Amid Coronavirus crisis, several Hollywood, Bollywood and television celebrities have extended their support and contributed in any way they can. While some opened the doors to their office and hotels for quarantine facilities, many donated money to relief funds. The lockdown has already taken a toll on the daily wage workers, as well as paparazzi photographers who are now out of work. Just recently, it was reported that filmmaker Rohit Shetty sent out funds to the paps to support their families. Now Hrithik Roshan has also extended financial support to the photographers.

Celebrity photographer Viral Bhayani took to his Instagram and thanked Hrithik for his thoughtful gesture. He wrote that there was already the issue of downturn, leading to salary cuts, media houses shutting down. “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.”

Viral Bhayani mentioned that at such a time, Hrithik Roshan himself came forward and helped 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,” he added.

Meanwhile, Hrithik Roshan has also reportedly contributed Rs 25 lakh to Cine and TV Artistes' Association (CINTAA) to help 4000 daily wage artistes. ALSO READ: From Anand Kumar To Kabir, Hrithik Roshan’s Greek God Physique In WAR Didn’t Come Easy, This Transformation VIDEO Is Proof
