Soni had also reached out to Aarif Khan of Lookalike Associaton who had organised ration kits for about 35 dwarf artistes who live in Mumbai. Aarif Khan said, “Actor Raju Srivastav and Suhail Khandwani, who is the trustee of Haji Ali and Mahim Dargah provided us with ration kits which we distributed to dwarf artistes”.
There are about 70 dwarf artists in Bollywood and most of them are dependent on acting and live shows. Soni said, “Most of them are sitting at home or there are some who have started a pan shop or doing some independent work to sustain themselves. Only a few of them come from secure family backgrounds and have support”.
