Maharashtra has become the first government to permit the shooting of films, TV serials, but with restrictions. Interestingly, the state with over 60,000 cases has the highest number of cases than any other state in the country. It has to be seen if Bollywood resumes operations after this order.
The state set a huge number of rules that should be followed on the shooting locations. No crew member above the age of 65, pregnant women and spouses to stay away, sets should have doctors, ambulances, no sharing of make-up and no kiss, handshakes or hugs to say hello on sets are some of the conditions. The State Government has asked to restrict the number of crew to 33% only. No elaborate sequences like marriage, market or fight are permitted till the coronavirus threat subsides.
