Shalin Bhanot Visits Kamathipura To Help Sex Workers Suffering In The Pandemic- VIDEO
The pandemic that hit us last year has changed the way we live in more than one. With millions of lives lost worldwide, millions are rendered jobless. While there is no end to this catastrophe in sight, there were heroes born who took it upon them to help the needy & the helpless. 

Actor Shalin Bhanot, who's recently been in the news for his big OTT debut with Inspector Avinash, is a busy man these days. The actor who generally keeps the help he provides low key, was this time spotted in the Red Light District area of Mumbai.  ALSO READ: Shalin Bhanot On Increasing Suicide Cases: 'Mental Health Of Children Is Of Utmost Importance'- EXCLUSIVE

Instead of just sending help, Shalin made sure that he himself would visit Kamathipura, Mumbai's biggest red light area that houses over 1300 plus sex workers, who have been hit the hardest in the pandemic. The actor provided ration as well as basic necessities such as soap and masks to over 100 families.

A distraught Shalin shares, 'It came as a shock to me that women had no food to put on the table for their families in that area and they had to resort to soliciting their bodies for as low as Rs. 50. Most of them don't have basic essentials like a mask or sanitation products. People are generous & across India, various funds have been raised towards the poor & oppressed but unfortunately during these tough times most of us really haven't thought of how the sex workers must be surviving admist strict lockdowns.'

"A social worker reached out, he wanted to bring to light the horrifying living conditions of the sex workers in the area & to bring it to the attention of the privileged communities to come forward & help. I was quite shaken after my visit and I hope that many more come in to help them," he adds.
