The strike goes on…
the third day of strike and our stars are forced to take a break from
their hectic schedules. While some are relaxed and welcome the off from
work, other's are anxious for the strike to get over so that they can
return to the sets. Here is what they have been up to while the strike
has been on:
"Whatever is happening is really bad. Our work is
being hampered because of the strike. The conflict between the staff
who are demanding an increase in their salary has brought us much
suffering. Their situation is really sad. I don't know what their exact
demands are but I do know that even producers and financers are running
into heavy losses as work has completely stopped."
"I haven't been doing any filming and I'm just sitting at home.
Even though it's a break, I'm not enjoying myself as I really want to
get back to work. I have a lot of fun shooting and hope to resume soon.
Let's see how long this strike will continue."
"I have been at home for the last three days, which is next to
impossible otherwise. I play an important character on Balika Vadhu
and, as it is a daily, we never get offs. I am now enjoying my time at
home. I go to school and I even go for garba so I wouldn't mind if the
strike continued. I truly support the strike because I feel the workers
should have some rights too."
"After Zara Nachke Dikha, I am doing another dance reality show
called Tyohaar Dhamka on 9X. I am also doing a couple of Star
festivities for Balaji so I have to rehearse for them regularly. These
strikes have hugely affected my work as I am not able to practice
"We've been at home. There is no work so it's like we are all on
holiday. Right now I am trying to finish all the household jobs that I
had left pending. On the very first day of the strike, I visited all
the temples. I also did some shopping and I am spending some quality
time with my family, especially my daughter Ashi. As for the strike, I
believe that if the demands are fair, they should be fulfilled. After
all, these people play a very important role in the industry."
