MUMBAI: Tamil-language GEC Vijay TV has provided a relief amount of Rs 75 lakh to the production workers who produce content for the channel. Two content producers have thanked Vijay TV for the gesture. In separate social media posts, they have expressed gratitude to the channel for providing financial help to distressed producers who have been out of work since the lockdown.

“In the time of Covid2019 lockdown, where no shoot or no media activities have been taking place for the past one month, the livelihood of numerous workers and technicians became a question mark. Considering these stressful circumstances, Star Vijay has provided Rs 75 Lakhs (approx) through its production houses to distribute this amount to all the workers and technicians working in their respective projects. Star Vijay has also ensured that the money reaches each one of them. On behalf of Global Villagers and team, we express our heartfelt gratitude to general manager of Star Vijay Krishnan Kutty, senior vice president Balachandran, programming head Pradeep Milory Peter for their kind gesture and support at this time of Crisis . Thank you,” said Global Village in its Facebook message.

“tv series and shows have been affected by Covid issue. Channels have been paralyzed without broadcasting new series shows. Channels have faced the loss without advertising revenue. 750 people from Pepsi Union, who believed in Vijay tv's series and shows, were unable to work throughout April. They are all daily income workers. For those 750 people, Vijay Tv has provided Rs 75 lakh. I produce two tv series for Vijay tv. Everyone who helped is thanking us on the phone thinking that we have given that money. Really that thanks should go to Vijay tv. They didn't even advertise what they did. This post is because thank you should always go to the right place. My heartfelt thanks to Vijay tv for doing this great help with humanity. In an adverse situation, Vijay tv is standing by everyone”, wrote another producer Ramana Giri Vasan, head of Fiction Team.

Post-production works for television programmes and films resumed in Tamil Nadu from 11 May.
