The film industry is abuzz with reports of shooting budgets getting slashed and actors taking pay cuts due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, actor Taapsee Pannu has weighed in on the same.

During a Twitter q&a session with Filmfare, Taapsee was asked if actors are also taking pay cuts like most other industries. Taapsee replied that it hasn’t happened so far but she is expecting that it will. “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,” she said.

 

 

Taapsee was also asked if the film theatre chains’ anger over movies launching straight to OTT is valid. She said, “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.” The actor, however, was confident that theatres will never go out of business in India.
