Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we saw the shooting of many films got cancelled the entertainment industry got standstill. Now as the unlock phase has begun across the country, we saw producers of TV serials have started the shooting of fresh episodes. On the other hand, the filmmakers are still waiting for the normalcy to returns so that they can resume their project. And among these films, we have Meezaan, Shilpa Shetty, Paresh Rawal and Pranitha Subhash starrer Hungama 2, where the director is forced to resume the shoot of his comic caper by September as the film also stars four child artistes aged between 8 to 11 in pivotal roles.
In the period of four months of lockdown, the height of these kids have increased and director Priyadarshan is quiet scared that the physical change of these kids will hamper the continuity of the film and that’s why the filmmaker has decided to resume the shoot by September. Talking to Bollywood Hungama, Priyadarshan said, “At this age, children grow up rapidly; there are changes in facial structure and height. While the physical changes that have happened in the past four months will not make a huge difference on screen, it will be difficult [to retain continuity] if we have to wait for some more months. Fortunately, only a song has to be shot with them.” He further said, “Thankfully, we had completed filming the baby’s portions in Ooty in March. The four children will be required only for four days on the set.”
Producer of the film assured that the shooting will be done following all safety precautions as he said, “The songs and sequences require us to film on the streets of Kullu and Manali. Considering an outdoor schedule is not possible during the monsoon, we are likely to resume work from September 15.”
