Producer Ishari Ganesh of Comali and LKG fame has helped 2500 drama artists by directly depositing 1000 rupees in their bank accounts.
After March 19, the Tamil film industry has come to a standstill due to the Government imposed lockdown in the wake of the COVID19 pandemic. To help out the struggling drama artists, Ishari Ganesh already donated 10 lakh rupees and groceries.
Now, on his dad Ishari Velan's death anniversary, Ganesh has deposited 1000 rupees to the 2500 drama artists, which means the overall donation amount is 25 lakhs. On his dad's death anniversary, Ganesh used to provide a grand feast to 1000 struggling drama artists and present them new dresses but this year, he couldn't do the same due to the novel virus pandemic.
In his statement, Ishari Ganesh said: "Though the money is very small, it would at least help them in some way for buying groceries or medicines".
