Due to the current outbreak of the corona virus, the entire nation is on a lockdown and this scenario is going to continue for the next 21 days. Similarly, all the film and television serial shootings have also been cancelled, as a preventive measure. Due to this, all the workers who earn their wages (beta and salaries) through daily shootings were left with zero options of income. Realising this tough situation, leading actors, directors, producers and associations have come forward with their financial and food donations.
