Yash Raj Films, India’s biggest production firm, has launched a second phase of the vaccination effort, which will see thousands of Hindi film workers receive their first and second doses of the coronavirus vaccine. Aditya Chopra had promised to vaccinate as many individuals in the film industry as possible in order for the Mumbai film industry to recover fast and daily wage earners to return to work. The pandemic has disrupted their usual revenue stream, and being twice vaccinated would help them restore it.
Aditya Chopra opened the doors to the studios in June for the first round of YRF’s industry vaccination programme, which immunised almost 5000 people. The vaccination drive, which began on Saturday and ends today, is taking place at the YRF Studios once again.
Akshaye Widhani, Senior Vice President of Yash Raj Films, confirms this development. He says, “Vaccinating the workers of the industry is of prime importance to YRF. We want the industry to bounce back completely and above all, the workers to have financial stability. The second phase of our vaccination drive will make thousands of daily wage earners double vaccinated and also aid in inoculating many more.”
