A lot of people might be inside their homes due to the lockdown without facing any issues but the majority of the population in India is facing issues. Yes, it’s the migrant workers and many household staff who have lost their jobs due to the lockdown and are struggling to make ends meet every day. Many Bollywood celebrities have come forward and donated to the PM cares fund to help the needy. They have been trying their best to do what they can to make sure these people are taken care of.
Now recently Bollywood actress Kriti Sanon shared a video on Instagram in which an aged person, who claims to be a technician on the sets of the TV serial “Hamari Bahu Silk”, could be seen alleging non-payment of dues from the producers. Sharing the video, Kriti urged the producers to clear the dues of daily wagers. Kriti mentioned that she knew about this “incident” because a friend of hers was a part of the daily soap. The actress also appealed to the Cine and TV Artistes’ Association (CINTAA) to look into the matter. “This is just one incident that I know of because a friend of mine has worked in this daily soap: ‘Humari Bahu Silk’. But my heart breaks to see so many people suffering because they haven’t received their payments! This is the time when the daily wage earners need their hard-earned money the most!! I request the concerned producers to pls pay everyone their dues!! They have worked very hard for this, and it’s rightfully theirs! @cintaaofficial pls pls help them. It’s a tough time we all are going through… and I urge all employers in every field to please clear the pending payments of their employees,” the actress wrote. It is important that the workers are paid so that they can take care of themselves and their families. We must all make sure that we take care of our house helps as they are the ones who have always been there for all of us.
