Bollywood strike on February 23 called off
Film & Television Producers Guild of India vice-president Mukesh Bhatt also said that after the positive meeting with the finance minister, they have decided to remain patient till the budget. “His hands are tied right now and I will respect that. I am glad about the fact that he heard our plea patiently and has asked us to wait till the budget,” he said, adding they will wait till March 16 and then take a decision on their future course of action. The industry seems to be relieved with this decision.
“It’s a fair decision as ultimately we are here to do business and not to strike. Since the finance minister has promised to look into the matter, we shall wait till the budget,” said producer Kumar Taurani.
