Vivek Agnihotri to help through art

  • Culture

As the coronavirus pandemic spreads globally, celebrities are doing their part to help by using their platforms to spread awareness and advice.

Bollywood director Vivek Agnihotri has taken a different approach by putting his creative skills to good use.

Mr Agnihotri, who directed the thriller hit The Tashkent Files last year, has taken up painting to raise money for daily wage workers.

The filmmaker has also tied up with the federations for junior actors, the art department, stuntmen and other technicians and is trying to raise funds for them too through his contact with NGOs.

“There are a lot of people in the industry whose livelihood has been affected. I will sell these paintings for them,” he said.

“I can only help in my limited way, but hopefully, it will encourage others to come forward.”

Vivek has completed two paintings and the third is a work-in progress.

“It takes two days to complete a painting. I don’t know how long this lock-down will continue, so it’s best to keep working on my art. It’s important to be positive and put creativity to good use,” he added.
