“Squid Game” is Netflix’s surprising, massively successful survival drama out of Korea, but its popularity could pay dividends for people in India too.
Geoffrey Giuliano — the actor who plays ‘VIP 4’ on the hit series — tells TMZ … he’s planning to auction off the robe he wore on the show, as well as his copy of a “Squid Game” script and storyboard, to raise money for widows and children living in West Bengal.
Geoffrey says his auction will be held by a memorabilia dealer in North Carolina, and all the proceeds from it will go to the organization Sri Radhe International.
The actor says he doesn’t usually hold on to scripts, but he happened to for “Squid Game” … and he also asked to keep his robe because he liked it.

Seems like a shrewd move, but Geoffrey points out that nobody knew how big the series would become. Still, he hit the jackpot.
Giuliano tells us he hasn’t set a date for the auction yet, but when the bidding starts he expects to see six figures for the robe and at least $10k for the script.
Much like “Squid Game,” however, there could be a twist … the actor says he has interest from a Las Vegas hotel about acquiring the movie props as well.
