As producers, you should ensure the best of medical help to each of those who have been admitted and provide the affected families your utmost support during the time of the need both financially and emotionally.” He further added that necessary safety checks should be done before the team resumes the shoot of the film. “You should implement all guidelines on safety and institute an audit process to assess safety standards at shoot locations before the commencement of any shoot. Only by such positive and proactive steps- the production team can demonstrate its diligence in adhering to safety requirements and thereby restore the confidence of the cast and crew (including me) to report back for shoot,” he added.
