“The impact of CORONA crisis is huge, unprecedented and multi pronged. We all need to do things that will ease the hardship of people around us and of our country at large. It is my first & foremost responsibility to take care of the various freelancers & daily wage workers who work at Balaji & who are going to suffer immense loss due to no shootings in the current scenario and uncertainty over the indefinite period to follow. I would thus forsake my one year’s salary that is 2.5 crores at Balaji Telefilms so that my co-workers don’t have to take a hit during this period of crisis and complete lockdown. The only way ahead, is Together. Stay safe, stay healthy,” Ekta said in a statement.
