Saif Ali Khan Takes Paternity Break To Prevent COVID Exposure For His Family; Bollywood Film Shoots To Halt Again? - EXCLUSIVE
With the shooting  of  Karan Johar’s production of Jug Jugg Jeeyo being completed after coming to a grinding halt with two of the principal actors Neetu Singh and  Varun Dhawan and the film’s director Raj Mehta had tested COVID positive, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gangubai Kathiawadi almost complete, the future of film shootings in Bollywood nonetheless appears bleak.

One hears from reliable sources that the central government may re-impose a ban on all film shootings. A source from the government informs this writer, “It is now felt that the decision to re-open cinemas and resume shooting was premature. We should have waited until next year when the COVID situation would be clearer. Shooting at the moment is not safe.”.

Rupali Ganguly who shoots for her popular serial Anupama round the clock says, “Every day we’re rushing against time to complete episodes which during these COVID times is not an easy task. But we spend so much time together that we forget about COVID once we  are on the set  every morning. I spend more time with the  cast  and crew  of Anupama than I do with my own family. I’ve a 7 year old son and  and an old mother-in-law at  home. But the producer Rajan Shahi to whom, along with director Romesh Kalra, I give  all  the credit for  the  success of Anupamaa insisted  on  having me  on boardhave taken every precaution.”

Saif Ali Khan has spoken to me about how unsafe it  felt to shoot  and complete Bunty Aur Babli during COVID times. In fact the real reason he has taken paternity leave is to protect his  baby  from infection.
