The last six months have been nothing less than a nightmare for many whose livelihood went on a standstill owing to the pandemic situation globally. Many were forced to ask for financial help online, while others feared for their jobs with uncertainty looming. Now, according to a report in IANS, one of the directors of Balika Vadhu Ram Vriksha Gaur, has been selling vegetables in Azamgarh district of Uttar Pradesh as his projects got stalled due to COVID 19. 

He said, "I had come to Azamgarh for the recce of a film. We were here when the lockdown was announced and then it was not possible to return. The project we were working on was stopped and the producer said it would take another year or more to get back to work. I then decided to take on my father's business and started selling vegetables on a handcart. I am familiar with the business and have no regrets."
