Covid-19: Tamil filmmaker Atlee donates Rs 10 lakhs!
The nationwide lockdown has severely hit the lives of common man. In film industries across the country, it is the daily wage labourers who have been the most affected. Several celebrities have contributed generously to help them. Recently, Tamil filmmaker Atlee donated Rs 10 lakhs for the cause. 5 lakhs will be transferred to the Film Employees Federation of South India (FEFSI) workers and the other 5 lakhs to the director’s union members. From Tamil film industry, directors Shankar, Hari, Parthiben, Manobala and many others have done their bit to help those affected by the lockdown.
On the work front, Atlee is still working on the script of his ambitious debut Hindi film with Shah Rukh Khan. The project was supposed to be kick-started much earlier but SRK has suggested a few changes which is taking time. With four back to back blockbusters in his kitty, Atlee has carved a niche for himself. Apart from Tamil and Hindi, offers are pouring in from Telugu as well. Young star Jr NTR has openly expressed his wish to work with Atlee. There are also rumours about the director reuniting with Vijay for a new film. Let’s wait for the official word to come out.
