Now, Sanchaya, the amateur theatre group of Bangalore has come up with a new initiative to help such artists

The troupe has decided to extend financial support to about 300 families of artists especially full-time senior artists and women artists. They will receive a stipend of Rs 3000 per month for the next 3 months

They plan to raise funds through ticketed online shows where audiences from across the world will be able to watch around 4-5 plays at their homes

The ticket for each play will cost Rs 500 where the ticket holder has the liberty to watch the play once with his\her family and friends.


The plays will stream on the Filmmakers United Club website (//
