Rohit Shetty to split earnings with on-set workers

Filmmaker Rohit Shetty supports daily wage workers by sharing remuneration from his famous show Khatron Ke Khiladi.

Bollywood filmmaker Rohit Shetty has decided to share his earnings of show Khatron Ke Khiladi with the team and daily wage workers on the set. Shetty will be directly transferring the amount in the accounts of junior artists, background dancers, stuntmen, lightmen, and various other technicians. He is using a portion of remuneration from the special edition of the show.

Designating him as the ‘Santa Claus’ of industry, producer Ashoke Pandit, Chief Advisor to Federation of Western Indian Cine Employees, took it to his twitter to appreciate the filmmaker’s initiative.

On behalf of Federation of Western India Cine Employees and IFTDA we are really thankful to filmmaker Rohit Shetty. As usual he has always stood by us, he has always stood by technicians, workers. During the pandemic he has distributed money for the daily wage workers, – Pandit can be heard saying in the video.

According to reports, Shetty has also donated Rs. 5 Lakhs to FWICE to support daily wage workers in April. The filmmaker also stepped in to help on-duty police officers by facilitating 11 hotels in the city for rest and provided 100 days’ meals during the pandemic.

Without announcing publicly or taking it to his social handles, Rohit Shetty took the initiative to help daily wage workers who are the worst hit by the pandemic. Earlier in March, he urged people not to abandon pets as the virus did not spread through them.
