and .. certain essential services are open .. bars , salons, restaurants with a limited number of 50% and also film work .. only work until 4 pm .. no travel or work after that .. so quick planning takes place and to all it will probably be finished within a few days and off to the studio.’
He said the shooting of GoodBye will resume soon, which also stars Rashmika Mandanna and is accompanied by Vikas Bahl. “My own entire shooting unit, which will be starting on my movie ‘GoodBye’ in a few days, has all been vaccinated by the production and extreme precautions have been taken to maintain the precaution..every set room is cleaned after every short break. disinfected and those who report for work are tested before they are allowed into the studio .. and random tests are done every other day ; the infected were immediately blocked and sent home or to the hospital,” he informed.
The actor also shared a fan edit of his photo to encourage people to follow Covid-19 safety precautions. Amitabh Bachchan shared a photo edited by his fan and wrote that while he couldn’t really understand the purpose of the edit, he does know that the message of the photo is to motivate people to wear masks.
“Iske kuch samajh mein nahin aaya ki kya hai ye , except ki mask pehne rehna zaroori hai .. although some easing in lockdown has been announced .. else ye jo blue color wala Spider-Man ya jo bhi hai , uski tarah latakte rahenge!” He wrote.
Amitabh Bachchan’s post comes after Maharashtra’s chief minister Uddhav Thackeray announced on Sunday that permission for film and TV shooting in Mumbai would be granted if the city’s daily number of coronavirus cases is brought under control. Thackeray said film and TV producers must follow all Covid-19 safety rules and take precautions during filming. “We need to make sure we don’t get knocked down by the virus,” he said.
He further inquired about his contribution to the Covid-19 assistance. “The oxygen concentrators ordered from abroad have arrived and nearly 50 of them have been distributed free of charge to hospitals caring for patients. Some of it will go tomorrow to the care center we have opened at Rithambara School, which we have started a 25 bed facility with and hope to add another 50 beds to. Nearly 150 oxygen concentrators destined for the Gurudwaara facility in Delhi that I could have imported from Poland have already been approved and are in use at the facility, which is very encouraging,” he wrote.
He continued: “5 ventilators, of the 20 others ordered – equipment that was difficult to obtain – have arrived and we are sending them to some of the leading hospitals who are doing exemplary work in treating the very poor and needy. number of drops and we are all committed to doing our best .. although huge amounts of the necessary needs are in position or in production and will soon make it feasible for our needs .. private manufacturers are in the process of producing the required vaccines in the many millions/millions, and we all have a personal interest in seeing our own private facilities and also the manufacturing facilities in their factories vaccinate all workers, to keep the numbers increasing hourly.”
