The shooting of television daily soaps is supposed to resume in the coming weeks. While some actors and producers express their excitement for going back to shooting, others are scared to do so. Likewise, Kasautii Zindagii Kay actress Erica Fernandez aka Prerna Sharma talks to a leading website about her decision. Erica reveals several reasons why she's not up for shooting yet.
She said, "It's not a simple question of yes or no. There is a lot to it. People have been out of work for a very long time. Some do not have the luxury of making a choice if they should get back to work or not. But, if you personally ask me, I am not up for it, not now at least, maybe a little later yes, and this is due to multiple reasons."
Explaining her reasons, Erica further added, "Firstly, we are just beginning to get out of the lockdown. There are high chances of a spike in the graph. Secondly, because we are entering the monsoon season where so many of us generally fall ill due to the change in weather. The symptoms of normal flu or dengue, malaria ( which are common during the monsoons) are very similar to the virus. This will create chaos and panic." Thirdly, actors even if they want to, have to shoot without a mask. So they are at a higher risk at work, more than anyone else. Next, there are studios that have multiple shows shooting in the same vicinity at the same time accounting for a huge number of people working together," Erica shared.
