Joining the growing list of filmmakers who have resumed filming after a chaos of six months, Priyadarshan is set to take his comedy, Hungama 2, on floors in October.
Shooting of the ast leg of the Shilpa Shetty Kundra-starrer will take place in Manali. “There is a 15-day leg left to wrap up the film. We plan to start from October 1. We need to follow the rules and regulations to shoot, because it’s tough to gauge where one can contract the virus from,” Priyadarshan tells mid-day, adding that he has reduced his staff to 30 per cent.
“It is not difficult for me to shoot with limited people because I am used to making films in the Malayalam industry with minimal crew. Whenever I shoot in Bollywood, I get irritated with the crowd moving around. It’s tough to maintain distance from the camera; half of the staff isn’t doing anything anyway. So, I am happy to be working with a small unit.”
