Of course, there is a bit of nervousness, but I think everybody on the set is taking maximum precaution to ensure that everyone is taken care of. Safety and health are of utmost importance in a situation like this. We are very excited and grateful that we are getting back to work. It is going to make us to value and cherish what we do even more.”

I, of course, was concerned about my parents’ health, especially my dad, as he has diabetes, so he has to be extra careful and cautious. It was a situation that was not in our control. This time away from loved ones was not easy at all.”
