Due to the strict curfew in Maharashtra amid the second wave of COVID-19, shoots of films and TV shows have been cancelled till May 1. In the wake of this, vanity vans from the film sets are now being used by the Mumbai police who are on duty to protect the city. Vanity Van owner Ketan Rawal has given vanity vans to the Mumbai police.
Talking to a leading daily, Ketan said, "I have diverted vans from Rohit Shetty's Cirkus, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gangubai Kathiawadi, and Aanand L Rai's Raksha Bandhan in service of the Mumbai police."
Ketan, who has been associated with the film industry for over two decades, told the daily that he recently received a call from Thane Police Commissioner for 10 more vanity vans. The vans will be for their police officers and constables. "I have a large number of vanity vans in service of the Mumbai police, they are the frontline workers; last year we offered it to the women officials who are field duty and needed to rest, use washrooms while doing their duties and of course change before going home," Ketan shared.
Not just this, he is helping Gujarati theatre artists since last year as no plays are happening due to the pandemic. "There are no plays being staged since last year so I am doing my bit by providing ration and other help to these theatre artists in these trying times," he added.
