JD Majethia On The Meeting With CM Uddhav Thackeray: ‘No Shooting Will Happen During Weekend Lockdown’
Amid the rapid surge in the number of Coronavirus cases, Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray announced fresh restrictions across the state. It was announced that on weekends, a complete lockdown will be imposed. On April 4, a meeting of Producers, Federation of Western Indian Cine Employees (FWICE) and Cine and TV Artists’ Association took place with Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray, wherein it was discussed how the entertainment industry will be impacted with another lockdown. Producer JD Majethia was also a part of the meeting, and he has now shared some details from that meeting.

JD Majethia is the Chairman of Indian Films and Television Producers Council. While speaking to ETimes, he revealed that shooting of TV shows will not happen during weekends, and that production houses have been informed so that they can start working on the scripts accordingly. “They will manage for this week and most people will have a bank of episodes. From next week, we will have to see how things will happen. We have to look at the bigger picture, we were about to enter another phase of lockdown but that has not happened,” he said. JD Majethia added that they are happy a complete lockdown wasn’t imposed, and that they have been given 5 days to shoot, as a result of which, broadcasters will have to come up with a strategy and plan for their channel.

 He further said that this weekend will be important as they will find out the result of not shooting on two days. “If things are under control in the entire state, then we will once again see if we can approach the State government next week. If we will start facing issues at our end like the episode bank and all, then we will approach the state government with our set of problems. We want to stand by the Government. This is a collective problem and we have promised the CM to stand by him," he said.

Goodbye: Reliance CEO Shibasish Sarkar On Amitabh Bachchan- Rashmika Mandanna Pairing In The Film: ‘They Play Father And Daughter’- EXCLUSIVE
The announcement of Goodbye featuring  Mr. Bachchan was a complete surprise. Says   Reliance CEO   Shibasish Sarkar, "Well, Bachchan Sir’s dates were locked in one year back. But we were not talking about it." About the unexpected  Bachchan-Rashmika  Mandanna pairing  Sarkar says, "They are not a romantic pair. They play father and daughter."

Is Reliance looking at more film projects in the coming year?  "We have production schedules lined up for the next 18 months. Many shootings are over. Many are on the floor....and some more projects are going on the floors next few months. Depending on the requirements  of the directors  and  actors, sometimes we make an announcement, sometimes we don't."

Sarkar feels theatrical performances of films since Covid have not been worth mentioning.   "In North and West ....it’s not up to the mark. I’d say it’s below expectations. In the Telugu market, some films have really done well. Kannada, Malayalam also,  some films have done well. In Tamil after Vijay’s  Master nothing much has worked. We have to see now how Sultan does. Telugu is one market that has done really well. North, West, East ....still very disappointing"

In June  2020 Shibasish Sarkar had revealed how he fought COVID-19.  "Not because of Covid, which I was fighting for 15 days. But there was a freak incident one night in the hospital. Some medicine reacted wrongly with the body and for 45 minutes I literally fought with death. It was so close. I will have to break this sometime slowly to my wife. She is also not aware. But anyway I am safe now. I have felt and seen death an inch over my body. Anyway I got a second Life....a new meaning of life. I have a couple of suggestions. First for the disease. You can't ignore it. You don't know how you can get it since it's like an unknown enemy, you can only remain careful. The next day you will be bad. There is no rhyme or reason to the virus and its progression, as everything is trial and error. So mentally you have to remain strong. The day you remain unwell you have to believe you will get well and don't get bogged down.”
