The last six months since March after the Covid 19 pandemic lockdown commenced though relaxed now, to a great extent, the life of the citizens had almost come to a halt or at snail’s pace. There have been frustration and psychological breakdown in families, youths, old aged and even women especially those who’d become unemployed, lost their jobs or work in private sector and field of art, theatre, films, TV serials etc.
The construction workers had been the worst sufferer during the pandemic lockdown but are gradually coming to terms after the construction activities commenced in the country. While thousands of people died of pandemic with over nineteen lakhs infected at the pan India level, the Bollywood n television industry n regional films as well, had been the worst victims with number of suicides taking place in Mumbai n South India n several other states of the country as well.
In the absence of roles in films, Bollywood n regional movies n television serials since the last six months while the affluent n established actor’s n producers survived comfortably but the rising stars n those still struggling including actors of small screen are confronting lots of complacense, frustration and dark future with their reserve money being finished and no concrete proposal in the offing. These incessant hardships leading to an unknown bleak future makes some of them go under depression n thereafter leading to such drastic suicides.
Just today the latest news reveal’s about the tragic death of a Bhojpuri actress in Mumbai who committed suicide by hanging to the ceiling fan at her house due to paucity of money n distressing financial mess, sending shock waves across the entire Mumbai film industry.
