Agreeing with his tweet, Udaan fame director Vikramaditya Motwane wrote: “I’m in. Daily wage workers are going to have a really hard time, especially if this carries on beyond the end of the month. Let me know.”



“I am in,” filmmaker Anubhav Sinha commented.

Filmmaker Raja Krishna Menon too showed his support.

Menon tweeted: “We are doing what we think is correct plus I personally will also donate to the association. All of us are going to inform the daily wage workers that we have worked with last ( in my case d unit of Serious Men ) to approach us in case of financial difficulty.”
