The Maharashtra Government has announced lockdown for the next 15 days in the state. While citizens are allowed to use the essential services all the shoots of film and television shows have been put on hold.
Now bodies including Indian Film and Television Producers’ Council (IFTPC), Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), Indian Motion Picture Producers’ Association (IMPPA), and Indian Film & Television Directors’ Association (IFTDA) – have written a letter to the CM of Maharashtra, Uddhav Thackeray, hoping to get some consideration during the lockdown.
The boards have agreed to open up vaccination centers and shelters and remuneration to the daily wagers for the one who will be staying on the sets. Since the post-production work needs to continue to broadcast the already recorded content.
Vikram Vedha, Pathan, Adipurush, and Tiger 3 are the big-biggest films which had to be stopped in the mid-way due to the lockdown.
Now the bodies have requested the CM to allow them to work on the pre and post production aspects of movies and television shows.
