Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan recently started the shoot of Sony TV’s Kaun Banega Crorepati 9 (KBC 9). The actor was supposed to shoot a segment with ace comedian Kapil Sharma, but the shoot got cancelled at the last minute.
There were reports that due to a strike by The FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees) the shoot had to be cancelled.
According to SpotboyE, Kapil was supposed to film a session with the Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan for the popular game show Kaun Banega Crorepati, but sadly the shoot was called off as the crew members – make-up artistes, light-men, and spot boys had gone on a strike.[ecp code=”4″]
It was reported earlier that film and TV workers had threatened to go on an indefinite strike after August 15 if their demands were not met. The workers, who are members of Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), had demanded a salary hike, eight-hour shift, and accidental and medical insurance. So, when their demands were not met, around 2,50,000 employees went on strike on August 16. These employees protested outside Film City’s main gate.
Besides KBC 9, Deepika Padukone-Ranbir Singh’s Padmavati, Shah Rukh Khan’s next with Aanand L Rai and John Abraham’s Parmanu have been affected by the strike.
