In the letter, the production house has mentioned that the film industry has suffered quite a lot amidst the pandemic and it is necessary to start it at the earliest so that 'thousands of workers can start earning their livelihood again'. The letter also mentions that the production house has made a request to CM Uddhav Thackeray to give them permission to purchase the vaccine and the cost of it will be handled by Yash Raj Foundation.
Later, FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees) penned a letter to the CM requesting him to consider YRF's request. Talking about the urgency of the members of the film industry getting vaccinated, the letter mentioned, "Vaccination is very important not only to fight the disease but also to fight against the dropping economy of the state.'' The organisation also requested the CM to provide all the necessary approval for the vaccination of its 30,000 artistes, technicians and workers. Check out both the letters here.
