The actor has also joined hands with the GiveIndia Foundation and announced in a video through his social media account that he will be going on a virtual date with a selected few who donate generously for the cause of relief to the labourers and wage earners.

Arjun Kapoor has captioned the post, "Would you like to video chat & have dinner with me this Saturday?" as he has invited his fans to help provide relief for their favourite 'chaatwala', 'construction workers', 'coolies', 'dhobi', 'rickshaw drivers' who cannot earn money amid lockdown.
