Under the association, du will host latest Hindi movies for free along with refreshments for these hardworking individuals.

Commenting on this initiative, Abdulwahed Juma, Executive Vice President, Brand and Communications, du, said, “The labour community in the UAE continue to strongly contribute to nation-building. As part of sustainability efforts, we are delighted to partner with BigZ to bring initiatives that help us resonate with this important community. By organising these movie nights and distributing recharge cards, we wish to create memorable moments for the labourers.”

Navneet Kaur, Managing Director at BigZ, said, “We are grateful to the team at du for supporting this initiative to give back to the blue-collar workers in the country that put in some long hours to build the country’s infrastructure. Movies are an escape and for many of them, this is a luxury that they cannot afford. We are pleased to put some joy back in their lives and help them recoup and recover from their strenuous work.”
