The lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic has left people unemployed and broke. Amongst millions of such people is playback singer Aditya Narayan who has opened up about his financial condition. In a recent interview, he said, “My whole savings are depleted. I’ve literally finished my savings. All the money I had invested in Mutual Funds, I had to withdraw all of that (to survive). Because nobody had planned that I wouldn’t be working for a year and yet chilling it out. Nobody plans it like that. Unless you’re like some billionaire. So there is no choice.”
Elaborating further about his condition, he said, “Like I’ve Rs 18,000 left in my account. So if I don’t start working by October, I would have no money. I would have to sell off my bike or something. It’s really tough. At the end of the day, you’ve to take some harsh calls. When you take those harsh calls, there will be a certain section of people who will say that this decision is incorrect.”
Aditya pointed out that if the government extends the lockdown even further, people will start dying of hunger.
Recently, he had revealed that he plans to get married to his long-time girlfriend Shweta Agarwal by the end of this year. The duo met on the sets of their 2010 film Shaapit and have been dating each other since then. However, if Aditya is out of work for some more time, he might have to postpone his wedding.
