Government of Maharashtra Has given permission to Bollywood and TV industry to start shooting under strict guidelines. For this, the Government of Maharashtra, the Producers Guild of India and the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWIC) have jointly released a guideline.
Under this guidelines, artists and technicians above 65 years of age have been instructed to stay away from the set. Even children below 10 years of age will not be able to work. These steps have been taken keeping in mind the safety of their health.
After the implementation of the condition issued by the Maharashtra government, all the Bollywood actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra, Anupam Kher, Naseeruddin Shah, Mithun Chakraborty, Paresh Rawal, Anu Kapoor, Kabir Bedi and Shakti Kapoor are under threat of unemployment. With this, Bollywood producers, directors, writers, lyricists, technicians and people behind the scenes who are more than 65 years old, will not be allowed to shoot under the threat of Corona.
In view of this now ‘Indian Film and Television Directors Association’ Has written a letter to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray seeking permission to allow actors, producers, directors, lyricists, writers above 65 years of age to participate in the shooting and its related process and the government to reconsider its condition Has
In this case, President of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees, BN Tiwari, says that the age old people are banned because they have poor immunity. In such a situation, if someone is infected, the entire work will be stopped for 14-15 days, due to which the manufacturers may also face problems.
During this time, the unit with which the aged people were already associated, will be paid. We will try to get the elders who have financial problems after talking to the manufacturers and get them money sitting at home, because they have been working with them for many years. Our motive is not to deliberately stop anyone’s work. No new aged technicians or actors will be hired at the moment.
Another condition of shooting between lockdowns is that the presence of a doctor and a nurse on the set will also be mandatory at the time of shooting.
