All members of IMPPA are requested to do the needful and pay the dues of their employees. 

Since the nationwide lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak was announced in March, all film shoots have been on hold, leaving many employees, daily wage workers and technicians among others out of work.

Today, the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) released a statement, addressing filmmakers who are members of the association. IMPPA requested them to clear all and any pending dues of employees, daily wage workers, technicians and artistes to let them live with dignity.

The statement reads:

“As all members are aware that the situation of daily wage workers, technicians and artistes who have not yet been paid the dues for their working for our members has become very serious due to further extension of the lockdown by the Government.

We are aware that our members are also having liquidity crunch and are facing difficulties, but on humanitarian ground, we request all our members who have taken work from any of their employees, daily wage workers, artistes and technicians for any of their productions to clear their dues as much as possible as they are more vulnerable in these trying times and to ensure that they get enough money to fulfil their daily needs.

Ye sunke mujhe bahut dukh hua.Yogesh ji ke likhe kai geet maine gaaye. Yogesh ji bahut shaant aur madhur swabhav ke insan the. Main unko vinamra shraddhanjali arpan karti hun. (I just got to know about the death of Yogesh Ji who wrote many heartwarming songs. I have sung many songs written by him. He was a very calm and composed man. I pay my respects to him),” she wrote on Twitter.

Irrfan Khan’s wife Sutapa Sikdar shared a note remembering the actor after a month of his death. Sharing photos of the Angrezi Medium actor, Sutapa wrote, “‘Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.’ It’s just a matter of time…milenge baaten karenge…. Till we meet again.”

Irrfan passed away on April 29 after a long battle with cancer.

Earlier, Sutapa Sikdar had written a beautiful note talking about her journey with Irrfan.

“It’s difficult to explain what a wondrous, beautiful, overwhelming, painful and exciting this journey has been. I find this 2 and 1/2 years to have been an interlude, which had it’s own beginning, middle and culmination with Irrfan helming the role of the orchestra conductor, separate from the 35 years of our companionship, ours was not a marriage, it was a union,” the note read.
