Taapsee Pannu feels actors too will receive salary cuts due to lockdown, says she is ready | Hindi Movie News



The entire Bollywood industry has come to a standstill due to the widespread coronavirus lockdown. While several films have been pushed ahead indefinitely, some are being released on various OTT platforms. Reports are also rife that shooting budgets are getting slashed and actors are taking pay cuts due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Commenting on the same in a Q&A session with Filmfare, Taapsee Pannu said, “Abhi toh kyuki koi shooting nahi ho rahi toh koi salary nahi mil rahi. Aur taiyaar hu aage humari salary mein bhi katauti hogi (Because we are not shooting anything these days so we aren’t getting any salaries either. But I am ready that our salaries will also get slashed).”

Theatre chains recently expressed their discontent over producers launching their films straight on OTT platforms. Talking about the issue, she added, “I am not shocked that they are angry. They anger is valid but we must wait and watch which way the wheels of time turn. Whoever can find a way out between the time and circumstances they have been presented with, will be successful.” She also stated that the theatres will never go out of business in India.

There are reports that ‘Laxxmi Bomb’, starring Akshay Kumar, may opt for a digital release along with Janhvi Kapoor’s ‘Gunjan Saxena’, Amitabh Bachchan-starrer ‘Jhund’ and ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ and ‘Ludo’, starring Abhishek Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Taapsee has her hands full with some interesting line-up of films that include, ‘Haseen Dilruba’, ‘Rashmi Rocket’, ‘Looop Lapeta’ and ‘Shabaash Mithu’.
