A few days ago, Rohit Shetty helped Bollywood’s leading paparazzi by inquiring them about the need for funds. He has paid off their salaries for the month of April. In an interview with Mid-Day, Yogen Shah said, “I had paid their salaries for March (but was unsure of the way ahead). Then, I got calls from Rohit Shetty’s production house and Hrithik sir’s team, offering help. Hrithik sir asked whether he should give me a lump sum to be distributed among my boys, or send the money directly to their accounts. I told him to do the latter as my team should know that the funds have come from him”.
