The Bollywood film industry is coming together as India has begun its 21-day lockdown to fight the battle against Coronavirus. One of the worst-hit people amid this lockdown are labourers and daily wage earners who are clueless and quite hopeless about what the future holds for them. With lakhs in India living a hand-to-mouth existence, the three week shutdown is bound to leave many hungry. In such bleak times, the Film and Television Industry and The Art Of Living have come together to provide basic necessities to daily wage earners. 

Television queen Ekta Kapoor took to Twitter today to announce her support for the cause as she tweeted, "In these crucial times, every  contribution can help immensely! Join in, in this people's movement by donating your bit at - http://iahv.org/in-en/donate/ #iStandWithHumanity."

I’m happy to contribute for this humanitarian cause. And guys whoever can help, you all can also contribute online," tweeted Sidharth. 

"Let’s contribute! While some of us are safe at home, we can help those struggling right now.. donate," urged Kiara Advani. Dia Mirza, Sanjay Dutt, Rajkumar Hirani were also some other celebs who pledged their donation. Take a look at their tweets below:
