The outbreak of novel Covid-19 pandemic has hit the global economy hard and left many jobless. And when it comes to the entertainment industry, the coronavirus lockdown has not just affected the functioning of theatres, it has also halted the film and television productions across the country. The 24 crafts of the Telugu film industry have stepped forward to provide financial assistance to the daily wage workers and other lower-income groups, who are affected by the shutdown of the entertainment industry.

The decision was taken after consulting all the associations currently functioning in the industry.

Making a statement on the initiative, director N Shankar said, "Keeping the ongoing crisis due to Covid-19 pandemic in mind, we have come forward and launched an initiative Corona Crisis Charity (CCC) Mana Kosam, to support families of those in need. The group will function with Chiranjeevi garu as its chairman and we seek to bring much-needed relief to the workers, who are struggling to cope with the Covid-19 lockdown. We request people to help prevent the spread of the novel pandemic and support our initiative.”

Besides Chiranjeevi, celebrities like Nagarjuna, Venkatesh, Jr NTR, Mahesh Babu, Rana Daggubati and Suresh Babu have announced relief to the film workers.
