BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Actor and businessman Sachiin J Joshi is in self-isolation in Dubai. However, the Jackpot actor has made sure he serves the society back home when India is fighting the coronavirus pandemic. With the help of his trust Big Brother Foundation, Sachiin has decided to provide food to the frontline workers in the COVID-19 fight, policemen and municipal workers in Mumbai.
“We are reaching out to the police patrolling the city, the doctors, nurses and paramedics at the hospitals, the municipal workers and the traffic police force along with the other forces who are ensuring that the lockdown is strictly adhered to,” says Sachiin, who was seen in horror thriller Amavas. “The collector office or police inform us about the area they need food at, on the same day an hour prior and as per requirements and we do the needful,” elaborates a Big Brother team member.
Though Sachiin is stuck in Dubai since the lockdown, he is coordinating the proceedings of the foundation from there. “My team of managers in India are working as per my instructions. My hotel’s chefs are getting the much-needed help in preparing food from our factory’s labour force. They’re equipped with all the essential safety gear. We’re trying to do our best, especially for the people battling hunger since days and walking back home because there is no mode of transportation. The sad part is that the smaller towns and villages of Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Gujarat and NCR-Delhi are unable to get the necessary ration. We are helping them too.”
Actress-wife Urvashi Sharma is supervising the operations back here. “I’m in India and in touch with everyone on a daily basis to help monitor the proceedings. It is important to be humane and compassionate during such testing times,” says the Naqaab actress.
