The Maharashtra Government announced partial lockdown on April 4, until April 30th. With regards to professional restrictions, private offices were urged to work entirely from home, while a complete shutdown was announced for weekends with a stricter night curfew. As for the entertainment industry, no shootings would be allowed during the weekends, but they can shoot for the rest 5 days.
A lot of people are not happy with the imposed restrictions and partial lockdown and one such person is actor Abhinav Shukla whom we last saw in the controversial reality show Bigg Boss 14.

Talking to SpotboyE.com exclusively, Abhinav Shukla said, "It's like history repeating itself within a year since the first lockdown. Lockdown is not a cure or a remedy for COVID, it's a way to slow the spread so that our medical machinery dont collapse by sheet no of cases! But along with it Lockdown slows the economy too, generates unemployment, creates disparity! If we (public and administration) haven’t learnt lessons from the first lockdown then we prove the adage right: “people who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it."

Yesterday, actor Karan Patel and Nakkul Mehta also took to social media to show their disagreement with the imposed restrictions and lockdown in Maharashtra.
Karan Patel, who often shares his views on Instagram stories, wrote about how actors, cricketers, politicians can continue to do their jobs, but it’s the common man who will suffer the most. He shared a post that read, “Actors CAN continue to shoot for their projects. Cricketers CAN continue to play their matches, day or night. Politicians CAN hold rallies with thousands of people. States CAN conduct elections and expect you to come out to vote. BUT the common man cannot go to work. #Stupid and Outright senseless.”
Whereas Nakuul Mehta tweeted about the rule of wearing a mask inside the car in Delhi even when driving alone. The Ishqbaaz actor replied to this news tweet and wrote, "Political rallies-Not needed, Bollywood Awards Shows - Nah, Religious Gathering - No, Kumbh Mela-Defo not BUT ALONE IN CAR - YAAAS!!!!!"
