Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan, on the occasion of his birthday on Friday, has contributed an undisclosed amount to the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) for the workers and technicians who have been the most distressed in the film industry due to the novel coronavirus outbreak in the country.
The chief advisor of FWICE, Ashoke Pandit, thanked the actor on behalf of the organization and wished him on his birthday. The official Twitter handle of the organization also acknowledged the Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania star's generosity and penned a note of gratitude for him.
