With the infection spreading yet again, the second wave seems to have brought in more concern and harm to India – Jyothi Venkatesh
Everyone is worried how this is going to lead to more job losses yet again. The situation is the same in the entertainment industry as well. Voicing the concern, Tera Kya Hoga Aliya actor Aarvika Gupta is hoping that the industry will be able to function.
“I just hope things get better soon. The TV industry has always been ahead in facing challenges and has been working following all the norms.
I hope this time too we will overcome it. We need to carry on as the livelihood of many is dependent on us.
So I think the shooting of television shows will continue, we can manage with night curfew,” she says.
However, since the situation is going from bad to worse, Gupta is not against shoots to halt for some time, if that helps.
“If the decision saves many lives then we must do that. This virus has already taken many lives and now it’s only getting bad, so have to be careful.
Post the lockdown last year, when we all started in June, many began working on new projects and some we expected to start early this year.
But unfortunately, with Covid cases rising again many of these projects have been put on the back burner. It’s unfortunate, but I am hopeful,” she adds.
Gupta was supposed to start shooting the second schedule of her film, but now they don’t know when that is going to happen.
“We have to wait I guess, but I am not complaining. The entire world is suffering right now. We must think about our lives first. Jaan hai to jahan hai. We have to be patient and give our best,” she ends.
