Taapsee also stated that with the shoots halted she had no ‘salary’ at the moment, but she was willing to take a pay cut if the situation demanded. 

For the unversed, INOX and PVR had expressed their disappointment after Gulabo Sitabo was announced for a premiere on Amazon Prime. They felt the makers should have been patient and honoured their 'partnership' by holding on till the lockdown was lifted. The Producers' Guild, however, hit back in a strong statement how producers were trying to recover their investment and theatres will always be the first priority on films.

Meanwhile, Taapsee has been spending lockdown by going back in time and sharing throwback pictures and narrating the stories attached to them.  Like other film stars, she too lent her support for the COVID-19 relief, by pledging to help the daily wage workers of the industry. On the professional front, the actor’s film Thappad was praised once again after it premiered on Amazon Prime recently.
