Due to Covid-19, many industries were locked down. But some have started working after the unlock and some are still not working. The theatre industry is one of those industries that haven’t started working yet. Every theatre artist and the backstage member who solely depends on theatre is facing a hard time right now. During this lockdown, these artists have faced major unemployment as theatres are still closed.
Recently actor Vaibhav Mangle has started raising funds for these artists by selling his painting. Vaibhav started painting since he has stuck at his village during this lockdown. Each one of his paintings is an amazing piece of art. His paintings have gained so much love from his fans. But being a theatre artist Vaibhav knows what hardships theatre artists have to face and how hard it must’ve been to survive without employment.
He then started selling his paintings in order to help theatre artists and backstage members. From news in his recent post, it seems that he has gathered over 70 thousand rupees so far and helped 12 artists. He is still expecting more money from his paintings to help these artists. Such a nice thing to do. It is sad to see our theatre artists, even after being filled with talent are facing difficulties to earn a decent income. With the increasing film industry the main root of acting, the theatre industry has become so vulnerable. But it’s a nice thing that artists like Vaibhav haven’t forgotten about their beloved theatre and fellow artists.
Vaibhav is a true inspiration for every artist. He has shown that as long as there is art, there’ll always be a way to help others!
