The actors, who were so impressed and touched with the work created by the young artists, even purchased some of their creations and brought them back to India. “They felt that they would also be able to raise some funds for the institute this way. So among themselves, they held an auction for the children’s work. In the end, they all made purchases worth 1,50,000 United Arab Emirates Dirham,” adds the source.
Tanuj Garg, chief executive officer, Balaji Motion Pictures (co-producers of SAW) confirms the news, saying, “The team received a warm welcome at The Rashid Centre that works for children with special needs. It was such a humbling experience. We raised money for them through an auction. I’m glad that we could take time out for this.”
