The outbreak of the Covid pandemic affected a lot of businesses across the country. Actor Ronit Roy who runs a security agency too experienced a shortage of funds for his staff during the pandemic. Fortunately, Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar came to his rescue. The actor opened up about these three biggies extending their helping hand during his chat with RJ Siddharth Kanan. The trio cleared his dues without asking for any documented proof. Ronit said that while others discontinued the service, leaving the employees working in his company clueless, these three transferred money in times of crisis.
Ronit told Siddharth, “So, Mr Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar. They never even called me. Actually, I was in doubt that all of this is shut, all the boys are at home. Their office called me that we have done the transfer, but send us the bills when things open again. I didn't ask them to do it, but they did it. My wife and I had a conversation… that time we did not know how long it will go on…I asked her what do we do?”
Ronit mentioned that many, in fact, did not clear his dues even after utilising the services.
Speaking about the situations faced by his employees during the pandemic, he said, “We decided that because I had 100-something employees on my payroll--someone's mother was ill, someone's father was ailing, someone's wife was pregnant, someone had a baby a month ago and another person had to pay EMIs of their house-- that we will cross that bridge when we get to it. We need to sustain these people.” ALSO READ: Rohit Roy To Reunite With Brother Ronit Roy For A Web Show; Deets Inside-EXCLUSIVE
