Default TV Actors On Shooting From Home!

Is shooting from home the new normal? TV actors think so..



Even though the Maharashtra government has considered requests from the film and TV industries to resume work safely after the lockdown, there's still the COVID-19 scare. So should shooting from home be the new way of functioning? TV actors and show makers weigh in their options.

Actress Donal Bisht is already getting calls for ads and serials.

"We are no longer required to go to different places for look tests. We do it via our mobile phones due to the situation outside. It is not safe and it is also the best way to keep things going. Entertainment can never stop. People are shooting for ads at their homes only. Even in TV shows as you can see the actors are making videos and channels were putting it on-air. And now we have to get used to it," she said.

Actress Jasmin Bhasin also thinks it is a good effort.
"We can do nothing about it, we have to just face the situation. And if we are able to entertain the audience and if it spreads any kind of positivity, then it's good."

Actress Sara Khan thinks it's really interesting how the current situation has opened up people's minds to infinite possibilities.
"The production team undoubtedly has amazing technicians and I'm actually really excited to see the outcome. I know that it may not be as easy as one has to create the entire set-up at home, but it surely is really intriguing."

If not a daily soap, actress Rashami Desai did shoot a chat show during the lockdown.
"New changes will bring in new choices in life. I believe in changes. And even after sitting at home, we are trying to entertain our audiences. The actors and producers are putting so much into it. Working from home is not easy, but you know what? You can make a film with an iPhone. But here you have to become the director and the technician, so there's when the problem comes in. But I would say it is a wonderful experience," she said.


Writer Sumrit Shahi also worked on a digital show, "Bhalla Calling Bhalla", which was shot at home.
"We have found new dynamic ways of taking forward visual storytelling. I had written a series called 'Bhalla Calling Bhalla' which was shot with actors at their homes, with the director on Zoom call. Writing for it was also challenging because of lack of physical spaces. But it was also exciting because you are trying to create something new. So it's an enjoyable but challenging process," he told IANS.

Talking about challenges, Asit Kumarr Modi, creator of the hit show "Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah", said that shooting a daily soap has a system.
"We are not sure how far it is possible to shoot a daily soap from home. If there are fun videos or even weekly shows, it's understandable. But storytelling, shooting, make-up, proper lighting...I am not sure," he said.
He is open to new ideas though.
"We have been working in one style only, if we need to work now we need to think more," he said.

Producer Rajan Shahi, known for popular dramas "Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai" and "Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke", sees shooting at home a good trend, but sadly not for TV serials.
"I have seen a lot of creative people who have made very interesting videos. It's a very good way to communicate with the audience but for a daily soap, actors to shoot daily for 20 minutes, will get very difficult," he said.
If not back-to-back episodes, there were attempts made by show creators to give content to the audience during lockdown.
"Shooting from home is the new normal in the present times but there are a lot of limitations in terms of overall experience and engagement. While we are finding ways to do it creatively and produce content remotely, a lot of elements are being compromised. The actors are using their homes as makeshift sets to shoot content which is completely different from the show's original backdrop. For our shows 'Naati Pinky', 'Choti Sarrdaarni', and 'Shakti.. Astitva Ke Ehsaas Kii', we shot sequences in the form of snippets to link it back to the shows' original storyline which worked well. But detailing the storyline requires a larger set up which is a challenge in the present scenario," said Manisha Sharma, chief content officer, Hindi Mass Entertainment, Viacom18.

As the on-going pandemic is still to get a cure, our makers and producers have made sure to look after everyone’s safety. In terms of calling us a week in advance and keeping us in isolation, to constantly having a regime of sanitization processes, everything has been looked after. While infact the moment we are done shooting a shot, all of us immediately get ourselves sanitized and go and put a mask.”

Two of &TV shows – ‘Ek Mahanayak Dr B.R. Ambedkar’ and ‘Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein’ resume shoot

After a three-month lockdown, &TV resumed shoot for two of its shows, Ek Mahanayak Dr B. R Ambedkar and Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein keeping all safety guidelines and precautions in mind starting June 26th and June 25th respectively.



It is time for the cameras to roll! After a three-month lockdown, &TV resumed shoot for two of its shows, Ek Mahanayak Dr B. R Ambedkar and Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein keeping all safety guidelines and precautions in mind starting June 26th and June 25th respectively. The limited cast and crew members who reached the sets on the first day of the shoot could not contain their happiness and were thrilled to hear the words, ‘Lights, Camera & Action’ after such a long gap. Ready to roll with the camera, Gracy Singh who plays Santoshi Maa reached the sets of its show all excited and prepared. Same goes for Jagannath Nivangune who plays Ramji Maloji Sakpal and Neha Joshi who plays Bhimabai.

Speaking about her first day at the shoot, Gracy Singh, Santoshi Maa from Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein said, “The moment I got a call confirming the shoot date, my excitement knew no bounds. I prepared my bag with the required accessories and makeup items properly sanitised and even kept aside the character outfit that I wore from home to the sets. Only the touch up was done on the sets once or twice. I felt the same way as I did on the first day of my shoot on this show. The moment we reached the sets, our temperature and body oxygen levels, was screened. We welcomed each other in our traditional Indian style, i.e. Namaste, followed by a quick catching up session. There were limited people on sets and were wearing masks, including me. At every point in and around the sets, there was umpteen number of sanitiser bottles and sprays. It was quite a distinct experience, but I am sure with time, we all will get used to it.”



Jagannath Nivangune, Ramji Maloji Sakpal from Ek Mahanayak Dr B. R Ambedkar’ commented, “Upon signing up for the show, I had started reading ‘Changdev Bhavanrao Khairmode’s book ‘Dr Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar’. But, due to busy shooting schedules, I was unable to finish the book. However, now I managed to read all eight parts of the book. It was wonderful to see Neha and Smruti Ji along with other cast members. We greeted each other with a Namaste. I am fully prepared with own personal sanitation kit and carried lot of masks with me for everyone just as goodwill gesture, though we also have those available on the sets. Our temperature was checked, alongside ensuring we sanitise our hands at regular intervals and continue wearing masks when off the camera. Everyone has been strictly adhering to the protocols and following social distancing norms. We have an exciting track coming up focusing on another landmark moment in Babasaheb’s life.”

Neha Joshi, Bhimabai from Ek Mahanayak Dr B. R Ambedkar’ said, I was missing my reading and rehearsing sessions with Jagannath and our Director Imtiaz Ji. I have been draping the saree all by myself for years and since the past couple of months I had been missing wearing one, so it makes me happy to be able to get into my saree look again. With the excitement of meeting everyone, I took out one of my favourite sarees to wear on the sets. I also carried my makeup, food, and safety kit to ensure I am fully prepared and protected, even though we have ample sanitation amenities available on the sets. It was a homecoming of sorts. We have a significant track worked out, and we are quite excited for it to hit the television screens soon.”

&TV’s ‘Ek Mahanayak Dr B.R. Ambedkar’ is a never-told-before life story of Babasaheb in the Hindi GEC space. Produced by Smruti Sushilkumar Shinde’s SOBO Films, the show is an inspirational story of Babasaheb and his journey from the tender age of five, to him becoming the prime architect of the Indian constitution.

Produced by Rashmi Sharma Telefilms, ‘Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrath Kathayein’ is the captivating story that captures the pure connection between ‘Bhakt and Bhagwan’.

Get ready to watch the all-new episodes of ‘Ek Mahanayak Dr B. R Ambedkar’ and ‘Santoshi Maa Sunaye Vrat Kathayein’ coming soon only on &TV!
