Accepting a request from representatives of the film industry, Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami allowed only post-production works and directed that all precautionary measures such as social distancing, wearing of masks, disinfecting the working spot, among others, should be followed.
The Tamil film industry is staring at a loss of ₹500 crore this summer as a result of four blockbusters being postponed due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Right from the daily wage workers to big stars, all seem to have lost the plot because of the looming uncertainty over the resumption of shooting and cinema-going.
Producer G Dhananjayan, who has resumed post-production work on his upcoming Tamil thriller Kabadadaari, has been strictly following all the safety guidelines implemented by the government. From maintaining social distancing to wearing masks, Dhananjayan shared a video clip from the dubbing suite of his film. In the video, actor Nasser explains how the team has been following all the basic hygiene steps.
Dhananjayan said that they’re pushing for July or August release. However, he said everything will depend on when theatres will open. Now, the Tamil film industry is going to be a new destination for Telugu filmmakers.
