The worst effects of this lockdown are being witnessed by daily wage earners. While the Government is doing its best to help people in need, Bollywood celebrities too are coming forward and providing food and other necessities to workers of their fraternity and rest. Stars like Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Sonu Sood and others are doing best in their capacity to support the needy. Now, Angrezi Medium actor Deepak Dobriyal has vouched that he will pay his workers even during the period of lockdown.
To Hindustan Times, he said, "I wonder if people in our positions are having so much trouble, then how are poor people coping with this situation? There are 6-7 people who work for me, doing different duties. I have promised my staff that I will keep paying them even if I have to take a loan. I will take care of them in whatever way I can." He further shared, "Saal mein ek film karta hoon, itni hi haiseeyat hain meri. I don’t have a lot of money to give away, but this is how I can help and I will."
Deepak Dobriyal revealed that he is stuck in Almora in Uttarakhand as he was there for a film's shoot before the lockdown began. He shared that he misses his home and family members who are in Mumbai. Further, Deepak also revealed that he has deleted his Facebook and Twitter accounts in order to stay away from all the negativity. "I see a lot of people posting negative things. I feel now is the time to just listen to the government. Jo bhi personal virodh hai woh baad mein kar lena. Now is not the time to show social media aggression," he said.
