Zaan Khan took it upon himself to fight for the right of the cast and crew of ZEE TV’s show Humari Bahu Silk. It all began after the actor shared videos on his social media handle of cast and crew members of the show, who were seen requesting producers to clear their dues.
Humari Bahu Silk ran for only 5 months with the first episode being aired on the 6th March 2019 and the last on 11th August 2019. But what’s saddening is that the dues of the entire cast and crew of the ZEE TV show have still not been cleared.
Check out some of Zaan Khan’s post on the issue here:
It has now been reported that Indian Film and TV Producers’ Council (IFTPC) Chairman JD Majethia has stepped in to resolve the matter. After the Humari Bahu Silk matter came up, TellyChakkar quoted Majethia saying, “Usually, in case of a dispute a producer or CINTAA approaches us and then we call our producer member and go through a joint dispute committee meeting. In this case, I doubt if producers are even our members. However, I have received calls from Hamari Bahu Silk actors and being one of the senior members of the industry I have addressed the issue to the right people. They are looking after the matter and we are being sensitive towards it. Let’s hope for a collective solution as the need of an hour is being responsible and fair. I have requested all the other IFTPC producers to please clear the dues of their cast and crew members. I believe everyone deserves to get their hard earned money. Also, in such testing times I would request not to succumb through these challenges and let’s stand strong and witness better tomorrow.”
While we appreciate JD Majethia’s sentiments and efforts, we also hope and pray that the cast and crew of Humari Bahu Silk manage to sail through these testing times.
ZEE TV’s Hamari Bahu Silk was initially produced by Devyani Rale and Sudhanshu Tripathi under their banner Klay Pictures. However, it was Silver Ivory Production helmed by Jyoti Gupta, which later took over as the show’s producers.
