The COVID-19 lockdown has taken a big toll on the entertainment industry, particularly the television business. A number of TV shows have gone off air and many other projects have been put on hold. The pandemic has resulted in unemployment and financial difficulties for many TV actors and crew members as all shoots remained suspended for more than three months, until recently.
And now, former Bigg Boss 8 contestant and radio jockey Pritam Singh has opened up and revealed that he has been rendered jobless due to the COVID-19 crisis. Pritam who has also hosted TV shows in the past shared his plight on his social media account with his fans and followers.
He wrote, "Due to pandemic lot of people have suffered n still suffering.
