Another actor Vipin Sharma too reacted on the news and raised the issue of underpaid technicians in Bollywood. He wrote, "Many techs work overtime n rarely get paid for that. Its terrible. Afraid to loose work they stay quiet n keep working. Many times they may not get fully paid as well while they already accept to work for less money in the first place. Rest in Peace Nimish Pilankar.”
As per a report published in India Today, Nimish tasted success with Salman Khan's Race 3 in 2018. He has also worked in films such as Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga, Kesari and Jalebi.
May his soul rest in peace!
