Mouni Roy was stuck in Abu Dhabi for over three months due to the lockdown following the coronavirus pandemic. She only recently managed to get back to Mumbai as restrictions begin to lift. However, her work has now taken her back out of India and, this time, to London.
Speaking in an interview, she spoke about the challenges of shooting during such a crisis and how she is nervous of filming, reports Mid Day. She said, “I am quite petrified and nervous as actors are the only people on a set, who wouldn’t wear any masks or gloves while shooting or in a shot. But I was dying to work and be on a set, so we kind of have to get used to the new normal. Let’s see how it goes.”
Roy added, “It is my first time under the circumstances, so I will know and understand better as we start shooting. I have been promised that all the safety measures would be taken and social distancing would be practised on set. So, I am hoping for the best. One day at a time.”
When asked about her flight experience and how it was travelling amid this atmosphere, Roy said, “We are calling it the new normal while waiting for the new world but it’s not just as much fun as it used to be. I used to look forward to the long flights as I like reading and watching movies and sleeping in between for 15-20 minutes every hour. But the experience was not like that at all.”
She continued, “In fact, it was quite unnerving waiting at the airport and later on the flight. Guess, it will take some time getting used to this manner of travel, as this was the first time I travelled after the lockdown.”
