“It’s a scary situation but the burden on people is far more frightening” – says Mrunal Thakur as she heads to Chandigarh for final schedule of Jersey

Barely weeks after wrapping up the penultimate schedule of Jersey, Mrunal Thakur is all set to return to Chandigarh for the film’s final schedule. Amidst rising COVID cases in the country, the situation has been persistently alarming causing a sense of fear amongst unit members.

After a fresh surge of cases post-Diwali, and suggestions of a second wave and new restrictions, Mrunal says that the unit has decided to go back to adopting the strictest health and sanitary measures. By creating a bio-bubble and strong quarantine rules, the unit will minimize contact with the outside world for pending days of the shoot.

Mrunal Thakur says, “It helps that I have the utmost faith in my producers. We were aware that the situation could get bad again but now with the amount of financial strain on the industry at large, going back to work is no longer a choice but a necessity. What’s important is being safe and following every guideline to the tee. We will be adopting the strictest measures, and work towards finishing the film by working round the clock.”

She further adds, “Without discounting any unprecedented situation that may arise at any given point in time all we can do is adopt the strictest measures. Sanitary officers, health professionals, and doctors have all been deputed on set. Reducing the chance of contracting the virus is our best shot and with a vaccine in the vicinity, we just need to get by this phase. Work cannot be kept hold forever when people are struggling to achieve monthly basics. A film set goes beyond its stars and we have the moral responsibility of supporting our entire unit. If I don’t work, my unit and team will not get paid. It’s a scary situation but the burden on people is far more frightening.”
