Exclusive! Varun Dhawan lends a helping hand to 200 Bollywood dancers, transfers money directly into their accounts | Hindi Movie News


Varun Dhawan has essayed the role of a dancer in his hits like ‘ABCD’, ‘ABCD 2’ and ‘Street Dancer 3D’ and amidst the current crisis, the actor has extended support to several real life dancers. As Bollywood went into a complete lockdown due to Covid-19, dancers were hit badly by the crisis and they made a collective video, appealing to producers and stars for help. After knowing the plight of the dancers, Varun Dhawan transferred money into the accounts of as many as 200 background dancers. The actor’s father, veteran filmmaker David Dhawan had also expressed concern about the situation of the dancers.

“Varun Dhawan has helped the needy dancers. He has worked with a lot of them in three dance films. He was very concerned about how the dancers are managing their livelihood. He promised to help them and try and address their problems,” shared Raj Surani, a former background dancer who now is a coordinator for songs.

In the past, celebrities like Sidharth Malhotra and Shahid Kapoor have extended financial support to the background dancers. “There are many dancers who continue to face issues with their landlords over rent. There are others who have ailing parents and there are seniors who need medicine from time to time. We are thankful to all those who are helping the dancers. Though shooting has begun but dancers will have to wait for really long time before they can go back on sets,” added Raj.
