The tweet that was extensively shared online, managed to get attention from Bollywood’s noted actor and director, Pooja Bhatt. Pooja even shared her willingness to help Vishal in any way possible.
Yes please! 🙏 how does one connect with him?

Many people also came forward to encourage Vishal to follow his passion and monetize it.
If he is willing to come to Malda, which we will pay for, we are looking for an artist to paint an Aaganwadi Centre here. Might not get paid as much but would be great exposure for his work.

No one can predict what’s the next thing that will take the internet by storm. Sometimes it’s brutal trolling and then there are incidences like this. Well, this is by far the best way to make use of technology and the internet. We salute Vishal’s drive to continue his passion while making ends meet by working as a food delivery executive.
