The Tollywood industry has always come together to help the needy and daily wage workers during the COVID 19 crisis. Out of many actresses, Lavanya Tripathi always contributed her fair bit of share to the needy. Now, the actress is providing facemasks to the people as they have become a health imperative due to the COVID 19 pandemic.
In order to keep the virus from spreading, facemasks are very important and not everybody is able to afford it on a daily basis so actress Lavanya Tripathi joined hands with designer Anitha Reddy to produce masks. Together, they have been making and distributing masks at no profit, for people who are not able to access the masks. The Arjun Suravaram actress says, “Please don’t stop wearing masks just because lockdown is at ease, you might be bored of the Corona, but the Corona isn’t bored of us. It is very important to follow the guidelines while going out. I urge people to wear masks while they step out of the home. This might go on for a while and we should all protect ourselves(sic.)”
The actress further explained her initiative and said, “The ‘mask it up’ initiative also sits well with the Vocal for Local sentiment. It has the intention to create jobs for thousands of local people. We are making masks for people to buy and also donating them to different sectors, which also helps our tailors and masters. We sent them on paid leave but sitting at home was depressing for them, so we thought they can make masks that will help them and others. It’s a non profitable venture(sic.)”
On the professional front, the actress will be next seen working for her upcoming film A1 Express, with Sundeep Kishan. She also has Chaavu Kaburu Challaga, a dark comedy directed by Koushik Pegallapati.
