In a recent interview, Amyra Dastur, a well-known Bollywood actress, expressed her thoughts on the current state of lockdown in several parts of the country.
A second factor, according to her, is the uncertainty surrounding the reopening of movie theatres, which she believes is another reason why most film producers are hesitant to begin shooting.
The actress believes that filming has already resumed in most locations where people are oblivious to the clear threat posed by the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, which she believes has already begun.
She is now hoping that everything goes smoothly and that people will exercise caution in the event that anything untoward occurs.
Dastur stated her scepticism about the direction of her own endeavours. She claimed that the producers were still unsure about the arrival of the third wave and that they did not appear eager to begin filming at this time.
Here’s what she has to say about it: Continuing, Dastur says, “It appears to be rather dangerous.” “I understand that things are opening up, but a lot of people are still not really shooting.” They continue to prefer working from home. Some major films are winding up the patchwork that has been completed. Certain initiatives that were intended to be announced last month have been put on hold. The decision on whether or not we will be permitted to shoot properly is still up in the air. Also, what happens as the number of cases increases and the third wave begins?
“We can’t afford another lockdown at this point.” When you’re in the thick of a project, things become more challenging. In the event that a production begins and then is stopped due to a lockdown, the costs will rise, and the producers will suffer a financial loss. Consequently, until and unless we get a clearer picture of when the theatres will be open again, individuals aren’t willing to take the risk of starting a new initiative, “Dastur says.
When it comes to her personal life, Dastur has already made an impression with her performances, having starred in two projects at the beginning of this year. One of them was a web series titled Tandav, and the other was titled Koi Jaane Na, which was a bit like a theatrical film in style.
When people hear, “Oh, we’re unlocking,” they tend to be a little surprised. We must, however, exercise caution. At the very least, I believe there will be a lull until September. According to the information I’ve received, projects will begin shooting in December. “The only thing I’ll say is that the vaccination process should be more expedient today, so that we can all feel secure going out and working,” she says at the conclusion.
