Ekta Kapoor donates her one year's salary in order to support her co-workers amid Coronavirus outbreak

The first thing you feel as a mother is guilt: Ekta Kapoor

Ekta Kapoor gives up one year’s salary to make sure her employees don’t suffer during the lockdown. However, while opening up about this donation towards the Coronavirus crisis, the filmmaker inadvertently disclosed her salary to the world. It’s a whopping Rs 2.5 Crore. However, she has donated it towards the betterment of her staff.

The producer took to her social media to make the announcement and shared, The impact of CORONA crisis is huge, unprecedented and multi-pronged. We all need to do things that will ease the hardship of people around us and of our country at large. It is my first & foremost responsibility to take care of the various freelancers & daily wage workers who work at Balaji & who are going to suffer immense loss due to no shootings in the current scenario and uncertainty over the indefinite period to follow. I would thus forsake my one years salary that is 2.5 crores at Balaji Telefilms so that my co-workers don’t have to take a hit during this period of crisis and complete lockdown. The only way ahead, is Together. Stay safe, stay healthy.
