Hina Khan on resuming shoots: It is a huge risk since an actor cannot wear a mask

As the phase of Unlock 2 has prevailed, many tv shows and movies have resumed work and shooting for their projects. Many television actors have also started going on the sets where the crew members are taking utmost prevention and wearing masks and PPE kits. When asked about the same, Hina Khan opens up about resuming shooting shortly. She told a leading website, "To be very honest, when I hear that shootings have resumed, the other day I was watching this video where everyone on sets was wearing masks and were dressed in PPE Kits, and some of them were art directors, ADs, and in between, I saw everyone is doing their job, and the actor is standing without a mask. I was like they have so much protection but look at the actor, they are standing without a mask and are at so much risk."

She added, "Except for the frontliners who have been risking their lives for us, I feel in every other profession, people have the option to use masks but as an actor, I can speak for myself, we don't have a choice and work in such close proximity with other actors. You cannot be just shooting a scene with one actor. That is not how daily soap works. It is a huge risk. Also, you do not know when you get exposed to the virus. I just feel for all these months, we took precautions and kept our families safe by not venturing out, what is the point of it if now one fine day you end up getting exposed to the virus and become it."
Hina was last seen in her latest web film called Unlock. The movie is a horror-thriller film which also stars Kushal Tandon in the lead role. You can watch the film on the Zee5 streaming app.
