“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.
