Filmmaker Ekta Kapoor recently took to Twitter to announce that she will be letting go of her one-year salary of Rs 2.5 crores to provide financial aid to her employees in her company. While the country witnesses a lockdown of 21 days due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, the world of entertainment has come to a pause and daily wage workers are finding it difficult to meet ends.
While several celebs have come forward and done their contribution, Ekta took to Twitter and wrote, "The only way ahead, is together! #StaySafeStayHealthy" as she shared a message. Her message read as "The impact of corona crisis is huge, unprecedented and multi-pronged. We all need to do things that will ease the hardships of people around us and of our country at large. It is my first and foremost responsibility to take care of the various freelancers and daily wage workers, who work at Balaji Telefilms and who are going to suffer immense losses due to no shootings in the current scenario and uncertainty over the indefinite period to follow."
Furthermore, she added, "I would thus forsake my one year's salary that is Rs 2.5 crore at Balaji Telefilms so that my co-workers don't have to take a hit during this period of crisis and complete lockdown"
