Kubra also said “Not Just actors. Writers, musicians, directors.. and soo many more… In the passing years.. we’ve seen some of our seniors who have ruled the industry request respect when it should’ve been their Right. There are rules and regulations that set a well run system and it’s high time we implement them so that our industry can run as smoothly as it should. Every artist deserves that.”
