      The coronavirus outbreak in India has left all the citizens all panicked. Owing to the ongoing pandemic, Indian Motion Pictures Producers' Association (IMPPA) and the Producers Guild of India have announced a suspension on all film, TV and web series shoots from 19 March to 31 March and even though it has been done to protect everyone from COVID-19, workers like spot boys, light assistants and set workers, who are paid on a daily basis according to their 8-hour shifts, are likely to suffer a lot!

      Considering the situation, filmmakers like Sudhir Mishra, Anubhav Sinha and Vikramaditya Motwane have joined hands to support the workers economically.
