With lockdown measures being eased in India, the infection rate is still pretty high, which has led to many Bollywood and television stars ruling out a return to shoots until its safe.
One such father-daughter duo, who will not be returning to any shoot, is Shakti Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. In an interview with Times of India, Shakti was adamant that he would continue residing at home until the situation changes.
He was cited saying, “I will not go out and work for now, nor will I allow my daughter Shraddha to resume work. I don’t think the threat is gone. I feel the worst is yet to come. I won’t let my children out for now. I know work is important but not at the cost of one’s life. It will be very chaotic if people start shooting now. I tell industry people in our group that it is better to wait than pay hospital bills. It is still a very bad state of affairs outside.”
“There are no beds in the hospitals and they are charging a bomb to treat people. There was this news where a person was kept tied to his bed in the hospital because he was unable to pay his bills. I am going to make a video on this too. The world has become a very sad place now. There is no humanity left,” he added.
