Now, as production resumes, ASAP in consultation with Government and Health authorities has shared 'Post lockdown Shooting Guidelines' with members.
According to the industry body, “The guidelines are to enable production companies to take appropriate and relevant steps to safeguard the health and safety of everyone attending a film shoot in relation to Covid-19.
