Several actors have come forth to help people as India battles the second wave of covid-19. Earlier, certain leading production houses have aim to provide vaccine drive for industry workers. And now, Ajay Devgn also committed in organizing a vaccination camp in Mumbai for workers associated with the entertainment industry and media professionals.
Taran Adarsh, Indian film critic and trade analyst took to his Twitter and confirmed, “AJAY DEVGN ORGANISES VACCINATION CAMP… #AjayDevgn’s NY Foundation conducted a vaccination camp on 11 June 2021 in #Mumbai… Those vaccinated included workers associated with the entertainment industry and media professionals.”
Ajay Devgn has made sure that he could lend a helping hand to a large number of people from within and outside the film industry.
A media professional who got himself vaccine thanked the NY Foundation, “I sincerely thank NY Foundation for getting me my vaccine. The last few months have been hard on everyone around but more so on us. Our jobs require us to roam the field to get our daily quota of photographs/articles. Without the vaccination, we were putting our lives in peril. However, thanks to Ajay Sir and some other actors/filmmakers, who have reached out to us and offered us help without us asking for it, our lives have become that much easier. Thank you, NY Foundation. Like it is said, it takes one to help one.”
Earlier, the actor had been at the forefront and helped the BMC and Hinduja Hospital to set up a 20-bed ICU facility and provide emergency medical facilities in Central Mumbai in the month of May.
Recently, Yash Raj films which is one of the most leading production houses in Bollywood also started vaccination drive for the workers of the Hindi film industry. The drive was held at YRF studios. The company led of YRF, Aditya Chopra has taken the initiative of vaccinating its employees.
Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, Karan Johar, and a producer Mahaveer Jain also came together to start a free-of-cost vaccine drive for the workers of the entertainment industry.
