“According to the instructions that we have received at present, we will stop shooting. However, through our shoots, we entertain the people who are currently locked in their houses and provide them with much-needed respite. We entertain people who are already stressed and frustrated. So, I see us as frontline workers. We will read the full order first and then we’ll approach CM Uddhav ji that it would be good if we could create a bio bubble and shoot,” he said.
