Now, due to coronavirus pandemic, many daily wage workers in Tollywood are finding it hard to survive. They have been appealing for financial assistance. Many industry biggies raised money to help the daily wage workers as well as those affected by the COVID-19 crisis. We hope that the testing time ends sooner than later now. Speaking of Kamal Haasan, we hope he finds strength to cope up with this irreplaceable loss.
