Recently, while interacting with media people, Dilip Joshi shared about joining the sets back after lockdown, “We are filming with a maximum of four actors per episode. We have cut down on the crew too. The makers have tweaked the script as earlier there were humorous confrontations between multiple characters, but now, with a limited cast on the set, it has become necessary for a change in the narrative. The show will focus on episodes built on awareness of precautions that are crucial in these trying times.”
The 52-year-old actor stated that he has been working for 10 hours daily, from 8 am to 6 pm, since July 11 and also stated how the show maker Asit Modi is taking all precautions to make working safely for them. This includes a sanitization tunnel, medical specialists on set to monitor temperature and oxygen levels, a UV Ray machine to sanitize jewels, and other equipment.
“We have to learn to live with the fear because the problem won’t disappear in a hurry,” he said.
