Hamari Bahu Silk show went off-air last year and it has been more than 6 months the producers haven’t given hard-earned money of the cast and crew. Zaan Khan personally took the matter and shared these videos where the actors, spot boys, make-up artists, dress man, stylists, cameraman, assistant director and many more came together and talked about talking about the non-payment dues.
Actor Kirti Choudhary, who played Mausami on the show, spoke about not having money to pay rent. She said, “Our payment has been stopped for almost a year. I hope you understand that we have worked for 7 months, 17 to 18 hours everyday even on festivals like Diwali and Rakhi. Our producers and channel are not helping us. Please help us. We need it. As an actor, I had to leave my Mumbai house because I don’t have money to pay rent. I had to return home and seek help from my parents because I am helpless. We used all our savings in traveling to the sets and other expenses.”
