Salman Khan starts money transfer to daily wage workers of the film industry amid the Coronavirus lockdown
Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan came forward to help the workers of the film industry during the lockdown due to Coronavirus outbreak. The actor had pledged to bear the expenses of 25,000 workers from the film industry.
We learned that the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) received the account details from 19,000 workers. Some of the workers voluntarily said that their financial condition was stable to sail through this pandemic and insisted that FWICE h helped those who need the monetary help badly.
General Secretary of FWICE Ashok Dubey lauded this gesture by the member workers and confirmed, “Salman Khan had asked for the details of 25,000 workers. We received details from 19,000 member workers. Out of which 3000 workers had already received 5000 rupees each from another film studio. So we have sent the details of the remaining 16,000 workers to Salman Khan and he has started the money transfer. Soon everyone will receive the money.”
Dubey added that FWICE received Rs 1.5 crore from the Producers Guild today as well as more help is coming the association’s way. After Salman Khan has transferred the money, FWICE will evaluate other member workers and distribute money to them. It will also decide on how to help the members if the lockdown is extended.
