Actors Arjun Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh will resume shooting for their cross-border love story from Monday. Only 14 days were left for the completion of the shoot when the lockdown was announced.
Kaashvie, John, Bhushanji and my team have worked hard to make sure that all actors are safe and comfortable. We’ve taken them through all the safety protocols certified by the state government through the Film’s Producers Guild. It will be a 10-day shoot with the entire cast. After this, we will be left with a four-day schedule, which will happen after the rains, around September end. We had initially planned to film from March 21 to the beginning of April, but the lockdown hit that plan for a six.
Actors Neena Gupta and Kanwaljit Singh will also be a part of this schedule along with Divya Seth and others. Kanwaljit was among the senior actors who had questioned the government’s resolution of prohibiting actors above the age of 65 from shooting for films, TV shows and commercials. However, the resolution was challenged in and rejected by the Bombay High Court. This is also among the first films to shoot with veteran actors.
Nikkhil also revealed that senior actor, Kanwaljit was keen on being on the set while Neena Gupta flew down from Dehradun and has self- isolated herself at home.
Bhushan Kumar, the head honcho of T-Series said, “It’s encouraging to see actors and the crew all prepped up and keen to get back to work. The safety protocols will be followed strictly on the set, and we are hoping everything goes as planned,”
John Abraham who is one of the producers of the untitled film said—
Emmay Entertainment, T-Series and JA Entertainment have to come together with the intent to bring forth fresh talent and curated scripts to the screen. We have waited to ensure the unit is adequately secured given the situation and we’re looking forward to resuming the shoot.
The film is helmed by debutant director, Kaashvie Nair is being jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar, Divya Khosla Kumar, Krishan Kumar (T-Series) along with Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani, Nikkhil Advani (Emmay Entertainment), and John Abraham (JA Entertainment).
