The nationwide lockdown to combat coronavirus has affected workers in different sectors. Amid these tough times, filmmaker Rohit Shetty is donating Rs 51 lakh to Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), many of whom are daily wage workers.

Taking to Twitter, veteran filmmaker Ashok Pandit announced Rohit Shetty’s contribution to FWICE.

“Thank you #RohitShetty for your generosity towards the #DailyWage workers of our entertainment industry. Ur massive contribution of Rs51 lakhs towards @fwice_mum in such times of crisis is really inspiring. #FWICEFightsCorona #IndiaFightsCorona,” Pandit tweeted.

FWICE has been trying to help its workers and members during this time. The organisation is making sure that monetary help that the association receives is utilised in providing groceries, wages, and other necessary facilities to its members.

We had also recently reported that Salman Khan will be bearing the expenses of 25,000 film workers along with his personal and company staff. sources got in touch with FWICE General Secretary Ashok Dubey to understand what are the actual needs of these daily wage workers and what kind of help is pouring in in these difficult times.

Ashok Dubey said, “Rohit Shetty, who is known for his action adventure films, is always available for his stunt artistes. This donation of 51 lakhs is a huge amount to help our film workers without whom creating these big blockbusters is impossible.”

Dubey added, “Daily wage workers like spot-boys, light-men, setting-workers earn around Rs 800-1000 per day, and they get manage to get this kind of work 12 to 15 days in a month, not more than that, so they manage to earn between Rs. 12,000 to Rs. 15,000 per month. Background dancers, if they manage to get a song, and if they shoot for two days, they earn Rs 4,500 per day, they managed to get work for 3-4 days in a month. Same goes with junior artistes, male junior actors get Rs. 1000 and female junior actors get Rs. 900 per day, for a 12 hours shift.”

On the directorial front, Rohit Shetty is all set to present the much-awaited cop drama, Sooryavanshi’ which features Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh and Katrina Kaif.
