As the lockdown relaxes in the state, things are opening up gradually in Mumbai and in the entire state. It also issued the guidelines for the film and TV shoots in the studio and outside. However, the film body popularly known as IMPPA (Indian Film and Television Directors Association) is not happy with the set guidelines for film shooting. Hence the officials of the IMPPA have written a letter to the CM of the state calling it to be impractical.
Like the other body – IFTDA has asked the state to consider the guidelines as issued by the state, which has barred people above 65 years for not working in the shooting areas. IMPPA while writing a letter to the CM has requested to give a second thought on the guidelines. It started saying that there are so many stars who are more than 65 years of age and that they cannot work without them. While they will be taking care of all the precautions while working.
While addressing the issue of contamination risk, the official of the film body claimed that the government has asked to send their team members to the quarantine centres for any symptom that can further create problems for them as many of their work are time bound. The film body has requested the state to reconsider the objectionable points by sharing the SOPs as issued by the Karnataka government keeping it more flexible for them.
