Infact would thank them for generating thousands of jobs for us through the years, I could make a better life here.”
“On that note, I’d just like to make a humble request on behalf of my fellow actors/ friends, other daily wagers that their dues be paid asap especially at a time when they need it the most so that we’re not waking up to more such Suicide Stories a few days or a month later!! I wish to be financially so strong one day that I myself could help people around. I rest my note.”

It’s shameful that some producers are using Corona and lockdown as an excuse for non-payment.. its really sad to hear such news..about people ending their lives due to financial crisis. Just hope that we don’t get such terrible news more often in the near future.”
