Encouraging her fans to ‘Bid For Good’ to help the daily wage earners, who have been worst affected amid the lockdown, the actor added, “And relief is what I want to bring to those for whom this lockdown has been a nightmare, people who have no income and therefore no food to feed themselves or their families, the daily wage earners. With the help of Fankind, I’ve decided to auction a mix of canvasses and hand sketches that I’ve created with all my heart. The proceeds from the auction will be donated to Give India to help provide meals the daily wagers, homeless and the less privileged.”
Explaining how can people bid for her artwork, she added, “Please take good care of my art. I’ve made it with nothing but love. And I hope it makes you proud for helping people, makes your house a little bit beautiful and makes you feel a little bit closer to me.”
Along with the video, Sonakshi wrote, “Bid for Good! I have teamed up with @FankindOfficial to auction my art & help raise funds to provide ration kits to daily wage workers. There is something for everyone – digital prints, sketches & large canvas paintings. The highest bidder wins!”
