Earlier this month, the office of the music record label and production house, T-Series in Mumbai was sealed after one of its employees tested positive for coronavirus. The office was sealed by BMC and was completely sanitized. Some of the helpers and caretakers were residing within the office premises as they did not get a chance to go back to their hometowns.

“We have always taken care of each other and in these trying times, we will strive hard to make sure that each and every person of the T-Series family comes out a winner at the end of this fight against the global pandemic,” said Bhushan Kumar, in a statement.
