Ronit Roy Opens Up On Getting Help From Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar And Karan Johar During Pandemic; Reveals Them Paying For His Security Agency
Ronit Roy reveals how Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar lend a helping hand to the actor during pandemic
Ronit Roy who owns a security agency protects the A-listers of the B-town like Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar and many more. All these actors were loyal to the security agency of Ronit Roy for years even before the pandemic hit the world but, after the pandemic, all the world’s businesses went for a toss and money was hardest to get. But, the actor recently revealed to radio host Siddharth Kannan that actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar paid the entire sum of money they owed to me for rendering my security agency’s services to them.
Ronit Roy told the RJ, “So, Mr Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Karan Johar- They never even called me. I was in doubt that all of this is shut, all the boys are at home. Their office called me to say that we have done the transfer, but to send us the bills when things open again. I didn’t ask them to do it, but they did it. My wife and I had a conversation… At that time we did not know how long it would go on…I asked her what we do? We decided that because I had 100-something employees on my payroll–someone’s mother was ill, someone’s father was ailing, someone’s wife was pregnant, someone had a baby a month ago and another person had to pay EMIs of their house– that we will cross that bridge when we get to it. We need to sustain these people.”
The actor revealed to the radio host Siddharth Kannan, “I had to draw funds from my savings, which I had gathered over time, to sell my equity and shares for my employees. Some people even held back on paying me for the work I had already done.” Some of Ronit Roy’s friends also read the article and decided to aid him financially. Ronit Roy had assured his wife that he was doing the right thing by looking after his employees during this hour of need and he could always gain back the things he once owned and ‘cannot put a price tag onto the good wishes of his employees.”
On the professional front, Ronit Roy will be seen in the Voot web series, Candy which is much anticipated by one and all.
