Arjun Kapoor to raise money via vitual date

New Delhi : Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor on Tuesday announced that he will be going on a virtual date to raise money for daily wage workers who have been affected by the nationwide lockdown due to coronavirus.

The actor has partnered with his sister Anshula’s online fundraising platform, Fankind and non-profit organisation Give India for the initiative. “There is a section of people in our country who have lost livelihood during this crisis and are in dire need to sustain themselves and their families. I am talking about the scores of daily wage earners – your favourite chaat wale bhaiya, construction workers, coolies, dhobis, rickshaw drivers and so many others.“

“The lockdown is meant that they can’t go out and earn a living. Fankind, GiveIndia and I, we have come together to provide cash in hand for these daily wage workers in serious need,” Arjun said.

He also announced that Fankind has spotted around 40,000 families which have been affected by the lockdown and they will be utilizing the raised fund to feed them.

“All you have to do is log on to and donate. Even Rs 100 will make a huge difference. Your entire donation amount will go in the hands of these people in need,” the 34-year-old actor said. The Panipat actor said five lucky winners stand a chance to go on a virtual date with him. “A special thank you in advance to everyone who is going to come forward and donate for this special cause. I will be meeting and chatting and chilling with five winners on April 11 and that night we will all be doing a video chat.

“I will be getting to know you, share a laugh with you, have a meal with you and just have a good evening together. Let’s come together to help those in serious need,” he said.
