Imagine the state of affairs, days/months from now, all of us can be free. We all will stroll out of our properties (nonetheless sustaining the social distancing system) and attain locations we have now been dying to see. Be it a film corridor, a mall or just our office. But, will we discover every little thing the identical as we left it? With the chance of the virus exhibiting up once more, social distancing can be a brand new model. But, how will that have an effect on Bollywood? The identical query was raised by Piku director Shoojit Sircar on Instagram.

Intimate scenes play an essential function in movies, and the outbreak has not helped with it. Shoojit took to Insta and mentioned that kissing scenes can be affected by the virus outbreak. “How the cinema world conducts shooting intimate scenarios in the film to be seen and planned after all this is over. Especially the intimate kissing/hugging scenes. How close or how far.. or cheat storytelling in those intimate scenes for some time,” wrote Sircar on Insta sending everybody in deep thought. 

But, hail netizens on social media, for they’ve flooded the remark part with recommendations. While one person wrote, “The whole cast and crew should be tested first for the safety of the whole unit, if anyone has the infection he/should be quarantined, this is the only option” whereas one other one learn, “It’s all about teamwork, even one member of the crew can turn up heat..we have to be cautious..we have to be wise..we have to be protective..till this time passes..”

Even actress Dia Mirza hoped in and wrote, “Guru, the entire process of making a film is intimate! So many people all coming together to create moment after moment in unity and synchronised effort. Aap intimate scene ki baath kar rahe ho, how will all that change? Will we be masked and gloved as a crew? Only time will tell.”

Well, whereas we can’t see what the long run holds, however undoubtedly, many issues will change for good after the pandemic ends.
