Pratibha Ranta, who plays Chahat in Qurbaan Hua, said: “We’re in the same situation as last year and it’s really serious. As the CM said we have to break the chain and I hope this chain breaks and things get better soon. Although the restrictions only apply for 15 days at the moment, I remember the last time recording was stopped it made a huge impact. As a result, the entire television industry is planning to find a temporary location outside of Maharashtra so we can keep our audience entertained and help them stay positive and hopeful. Even so, I would like to say that we should all take reasonable precautions and wear masks when getting out, disinfecting ourselves and our surroundings from time to time, and staying indoors as much as possible because prevention is better than cure, after all. Stay safe!”

Raghav Tiwari, who plays the role of Aditya in Hamariwali Good News, revealed: “It’s pretty unfortunate that we have to stop filming films and series. However, we all know how many stars’ actors, crew members, and family members have tested positive recently. The second wave of COVID-19 is dangerous and we have suddenly seen a boom in the number of cases. Nobody is safe. I think this was a necessary step and I think we should all support the government’s decision on our health and safety and comply with all the rules and regulations that have been set. We have to control this pandemic. If we continue to be negligent it can get out of hand. Instead of thinking about the small losses we might suffer in the moment, we should think about the positive aspects of the future. Let’s all follow the rules and regulations, let’s fuel the drive and let’s help put an end to the pandemic. While I will miss shooting Good News for Hamariwali, I believe health is wealth and these are necessary steps that I will certainly welcome. “

Pooja Banerjee, who plays the role of Rhea in Kumkum Bhagya, revealed: “It is disheartening to hear that filming for films and series will come to a standstill. While I know we have to break the chain and I fully support the government’s decision, I think we also have to take care of our finances and people who depend on us. There are several daily wage earners who depend on the entertainment industry. Personally, I would pick something else outside of Mumbai if I got anything. Of course, I will take all the necessary precautions, but I will not be able to sit at home. “
Siddhaanth Vir Surryavanshi, who played the role of Kuldeep in Kyun Rishton revealed Mein Katti Batti, “I welcome the government’s decision and understand that all announced measures were necessary to break the chain of transmission of COVID-19.

I would ask everyone to take all necessary precautions and stay indoors unless it is strictly necessary to get out. Take care of yourself, stay safe. “

Sanjay Gagnani, who plays the role of Prithvi in Zee TV’s Kundali Bhagya, revealed: “We have all had a very difficult and challenging time for a year. We have all seen how much the people of India and the world suffered during the last lockdown, and after a few months, at the beginning of the year, we saw a new glimmer of hope with the vaccines, hoping that everything would be fine soon, and we would never face a lockdown again. But the second wave of COVID-19 washed away not only the hopes of many, but also many lives. The scenario has really become uncontrollable and so the administration has had no choice but to impose these restrictions across Maharashtra in order to break the chain of the virus again and I applaud it as I believe that these are absolutely necessary measures . Once again the city that never sleeps would partially sleep. The shootings will stall in their current state and life would stall again for many of us. However, these are really difficult and challenging times. I’m scared, not just for myself, but for everyone around me as everyone is suffering. Nevertheless, I believe that our state administration made this decision after consulting with experts, and I will fully adhere to it. While I will miss the filming of Kundali Bhagya and wish we didn’t have to go through another lockdown, I support the government’s decision as I believe that everything that has been decided is in favor of the citizens and the country. I believe the number of COVID cases can only decrease if this chain is broken, which would only be possible through strict restrictions. Everyone now knows what precautions must be taken to be safe. So I urge everyone to take all necessary precautions, follow guidelines, and not lose hope. Life is a struggle and change is inevitable. There will be a time when COVID and lockdowns would be a thing of the past. From now on we should all be united to help one another and be there for one another to overcome these difficult times. “

Tannaz Irani, who plays the role of Maharani Rajeshwari in the Apna period, told Bhi Aayega: “I would just like to say quite selflessly that I feel very bad for the channels, the production houses and our crew members who live on daily wages. This was literally my first reaction after hearing that filming on Apna Time Bhi Aayega and other series was about to stall. It feels like it was just yesterday when things got better and suddenly the carpet was removed from under her feet. People become helter skelter and try to find alternative locations. Every show wants to shoot in places like Goa and Jaipur outside of the city and I’m sure it will be very costly for the producers too. Personally, I’ve personally gone through COVID and believe that these were absolutely necessary steps. I wholeheartedly support the government’s decision in light of the growing cases and the health and safety of all. I will try to get the best out of everything with a lot of time. I will enjoy it with my kids now. Sitting at home alone my mind becomes really very creative and this is how Bhakhtyar and myself come up with most of our unique ideas for roles, especially those of our Parsi couple. So we hope to break this lockdown and make people laugh. We have received tons of messages from people around the world who appreciate our roles and tell us how they got distracted from the pandemic. Myself and Bhakhtyar are all in the process of helping people make this change in the way they think. “

Preyal Shah, who plays Kiara in the Apna period, told Bhi Aayega: “We went through this in 2020 and we are in the same place again this year. Honestly, it’s a deja vu feel for me, but I think given the current scenario, these are the best steps the government could have taken to break the chain of transmission. While we may have to be inside for the next 15 days, I am lucky to have my entire family with me here in Mumbai, and I feel blessed to be able to spend some time with them again during this time. I want to ask everyone to be safe and stay indoors as this pandemic has already generated a lot of paranoia among people and it is time to take it seriously and value our lives. “
Megha Ray, who plays the role of Rani on Zee TV’s Apna Time, told Bhi Aayega: “I think the Maharashtra government’s decision is definitely having a big impact on the entertainment industry. However, I also believe that breaking the chain is the order of the day, especially after looking at how quickly the virus has spread to every nook and cranny of the state. It is a necessary inconvenience to endure for a greater cause, and while I felt that the majority of the crew members making a day could be financially affected, I believe there are as many production houses for them as there are Hope I’ve been looking for alternatives to continue filming in some way and minimize the impact on the show and the team it involves. The idea is to go to safer places to shoot and create a bio-bubble that will help minimize the risk from exposure. Let’s see what to expect! “
