While most movie and TV shoots have been halted owing to the lockdown, some teams seem to be taking advantage of the fact that the GO announcing the lockdown did not explicitly mention that film and TV shoots cannot take place.
Actress Chandini Tamilarasan has pointed out to this situation in a post on her social media page. She also appealed to the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, MK Stalin to ensure that the lockdown is strictly enforced to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
She wrote, “Isn’t it supposed to be a complete lockdown ? How come a lot of shootings are happening in chennai unofficially. People’s lives matter the most and we need to curb the spread . Requesting our CM @mkstalin sir to please look into this and take the required actions .”
