Singer-actor Aditya Narayan has brushed aside rumours that he is bankrupt, adding that the coronavirus lockdown did affect him financially. Reports started floating when, in an interview, Aditya had said that he has exhausted all his savings and is only left with Rs 18,000 in his bank.
In an interview to The Indian Express, Aditya said that the reports were exaggerated.
""I was taken aback when so many people called me after the interview. I will also admit that I was touched because many from the industry offered help. The COVID-19 lockdown took a toll on everyone. I did face a tough time like many others, but I am not bankrupt. Everything is fine now, and I hope things take a turn for the better from here"." - Aditya Narayan, Singer-Actor
In another interview to TellyChakkar, Aditya said that he has been employed for two decades so it would be difficult for him to run out of savings.
In the original Bollywood Bubble interview, Aditya Narayan had said, “If the government extends the lockdown even further, people will start dying of hunger. My whole savings are depleted. 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. So there is no choice. Like I’ve Rs 18,000 left in my account.”
