As we all know how an array of shows are shooting away in different cities abiding by the lockdown rules imposed on Maharashtra, Star Plus' Pandya Store is also one of them.
The actors are away and are shooting in Bikaner's Gajner Palace for the show also following all the protocols.
Leading man Kinshuk Mahajan opened up with ETimes TV on this experience of shooting in a bio-bubble along with the idea of also having his wife with him in Bikaner while his kids are away.
He said, “It’s been a month since we are here and trying our best to entertain our loyal audiences, who have developed a bond with our onscreen characters. As a complete lockdown was imposed in Mumbai, the shooting was shifted to Bikaner.”
He added, “Initially, we were all apprehensive about our health and safety. Fortunately, the production team took great care of the entire cast and crew and everything is going very smooth. They have created a bio-bubble and no one is allowed to step out. We are shooting here while following all the safety protocols. We stay inside the property and shoot here. As and when we get free, we spend time with the co-actors and try to cheer each other up. Luckily, the property is beautiful and has lush greenery.”
Talking about having wife with her but kids being away, he said, “I talk to my kids every day on video calls so that we can stay connected. Thanks to technology, I can see my kids and talk to them every day."
He ended up mentioning about how he feels lucky to be working during the pandemic, “I feel lucky to have work during this global pandemic. People associated with the industry don’t even have the option of working from home. If we do not step out, we will be jobless. Not just us, even the daily wagers, marginal workers and technicians in various departments take the risk to step out for work. All of us are living in an uncertain world where nobody knows what is going to happen next. Everybody has got insecurities but they do not have a choice. They have to go out and make a living for their families. I feel we must salute their spirit.”
