Sonalee Kulkarni extends support to backstage artistes

Actress Sonalee Kulkarni who is judging the reality show ‘Dancing Queen-Size Large Full Charge’ recently extended helping hand to backstage artistes who are suffering loss of income owing to restriction in the field of entertainment as a result of Corona pandemic.

The ‘Hirakani’ movie actress was present at an event in Pune. The ‘Dhurala’ actress who took the initiative ahead of Diwali joined by Akhil Bharatiya Marathi Chitrapat Mahamandal and other private organisation. The actress held a small Diwali celebration for veteran backstage artistes. In the programme, the actress also stressed on emotional support to these counterparts who play important roles in the entertainment industry. Sonalee says, “Diwali is an important festival. But this year, due to the pandemic, lots of senior Marathi backstage film artists were going through hard times and there was very little help available. I wanted to meet these artists and celebrate with them. I think apart from financial help, they also need emotional support and someone who can tell them that they are not alone in this difficult time.”
