The Chief Minister of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray has allowed consent to shoot movies and shows in Maharashtra. On Sunday night, the government provided guidelines in the wake of considering the rules set by the individuals from the film business. While the business has expressed gratitude toward the CM, the Indian Film and Television Directors’ Association, headed by Ashoke Pandit, kept in touch with the CM’s office requesting two focuses in the guidelines to be changed.
Movie and TV Director’s Association demand two changes in rules for shooting
A piece of the letter sent to the CM read, “Sir, let us educate you that major incredible on-screen characters viz. Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Paresh Rawal, Annu Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Dharmendra, Shakti Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Pankaj Kapur, Jackie Shroff, Danny Denzongpa, Dalip Tahil, Tinnu Anand, Rakesh Bedi, Kabir Bedi and others. Incredible Directors, Film Makers and Writers viz. Anil Sharma, David Dhawan, Subhash Ghai, Shyam Benegal, Mani Ratnam, Prakash Jha, Shekhar Kapur, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Mahesh Bhat, Priyadarshan, Gulzar, Javed Akhtar and other people who are over 65 yrs are effectively working in the business. This proviso is consequently illogical since it would limit a portion of the extraordinary lights of our industry.”
The second point that they raised was about the nearness of specialists and medical caretakers on shooting spots. “To have a Doctor and medical attendant positioned at each shooting premises. We might want to bring to your caring notification that the state is as of now confronting issues due to non-accessibility of the Doctors and medical caretakers to adapt to the expanded number of patients from the COVID-19 pandemic and in this manner it isn’t reasonable to have a specialist and an attendant to be positioned at each shooting premises. Rather, we recommend having a Doctor and Nurse accessible territory insightful at the shooting areas,” the letter states.
