Many migrant workers and daily wage earners have completely lost their source of income in the current lockdown. On the other hand, many tv and Bollywood stars are still worried about taking pay cuts. Bhabhiji Ghar Pe Hain fame Saumya Tandon recently spoke to Pinkvilla about issues surrounding her pay.
Tandon has revealed that her producers have asked her to take a pay cut. She also said that her old payments are also severely delayed. However, Tandon added that she trusts her producers and she is optimistic about her payment.
In the interview with Pinkvilla Tandon added saying, "Our payments are also delayed. My payments are severely delayed. So, the payments are yet to be completely cleared. I don’t distrust them and I am sure they should and they would clear but yes, they are delayed. It is sad. They (actors) have their own rents, parents to look after. It is sad that the payments are delayed. I don’t know what is the reason behind it, a lot of people say that the networks are also not getting money because of no advertisements but nevertheless, this is the payment of work done. We usually work on a 90 days credit period. The revenue of that work I assume is already there and ideally, it should be cleared. I can still sustain but many others can’t."
The tv actor has also urged her fans to donate PPE Kits for frontline workers who are fighting the Coronavirus pandemic. Saumya has also made a contribution to an initiative for COVID 19 relief.
