With the novel Coronavirus taking everyone by storm, it brought everything to a standstill in 2020. From schools, colleges, jobs to film’s shoot, every sector was heavily affected. However, now the lockdown stress is getting relaxed with many resuming their work already. In fact, even the makers have resumed the shooting in the country while following the safety guidelines. Now, renowned filmmakers like Ekta Kapoor, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Nitesh Tiwari, Imtiaz Ali, Ssanjay Tripathy met the governor of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha and Nitishwar Kumar - Principal Secretary to LG, J&K - to discuss the film’s shoot and to revive Bollywood’s patronage with the state.
Not so long ago, trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared a tweet, mentioning the same which was backed with some pictures from the meeting. The tweet read, “REVIVING FILM SHOOTS IN #JAMMU & #KASHMIR... A delegation of film-makers - led by #MahaveerJain - called on Hon Lieutenant Governor of #JammuAndKashmir Shri #ManojSinha ji and Shri #NitishwarKumar Ji [Principal Secretary to LG, J&K] for reviving film shoots in #JandK”. The meeting was held in Mumbai itself where all the filmmakers met the Governor while Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty joined the meeting via phone call. Karen later tweeted, "Looking forward to filming"
His another tweet read, “The meet - held in #Mumbai on Sunday evening [14 Feb 2021] - was attended by well-known filmmakers #DineshVijan, #EktaKapoor, #ImtiazAli, #NiteshTiwari, #AshwinyIyerTiwari and #SsanjayTripathy... #KaranJohar and #RohitShetty spoke over the phone with the LG. #JammuAndKashmir #JandK”.
