Kartik Aaryan is currently creating online content for his fans from his home. He is hosting a show called Koki Poochega where he interviews various frontline workers who are fighting the pandemic. He is often also joined by his sister and other family members on the platform. Recently Kartik Aaryan sat down for an interview with Anupama Chopra. Aaryan spoke about the current situation of Bollywood and the future of the industry post lockdown.
Anupama Chopra herself mentions that in a recent webinar about Bollywood someone said that Bollywood is going to approximately take a hit of $ 1 billion dollars. This means many films will reduce crew costs and the number of people working on any one film. Chopra asked Aaryan about possible pay cuts in the upcoming future.
Responding to Chopra's question Aaryan said, 'I wouldn’t want to cut down on people’s jobs. There has to be a solution wherein that problem also doesn’t crop up and producers (who are getting hit), they too are saved. There has to be solution and a balance will come out. Whatever it takes for the industry to get together and start working, I think, I am up for it. I would do whatever collectively we decide to do.'
Kartik also said that he is willing to take a pay cut if it helps the industry. He added saying, 'If that is something that is gonna help the industry, I think we all should do that. We should be up for it. We have taken a huge hit, as a country and as an industry also.'
