Arjun's co-star for an upcoming untitled flick, Rakul Preet Singh, chimed into the comments section writing, "Chalo let's complete our film now."
Keeping in accordance with guidelines of the state government to prevent the spread of COVID-19 on the sets, cameras started rolling in the Indian television industry last month, while Bollywood is yet to begin shoot of films.
The guidelines include maintaining 33 percent crew on sets and all of them should carry identification cards and Aarogya Setu app downloaded on their compatible devices, shooting crew should maintain a six-feet distance from each other and wear masks as well as maintain hygiene.
Arjun said while he was a bit skeptical to come for the shoot, the adequate safety measures taken on the sets put him at ease.
“I have to admit that I was a bit jittery at the start but seeing all the safety measures in place, I became absolutely fine in no time. Naturally, the initial days of us stepping out to work again will be a little difficult for all of us psychologically."
“But today, I’m more confident of shooting and being around people on the sets because I have seen the extensive preparations that people are taking to ensure we have the highest safety measures on the sets," the actor said.
On film front, Arjun is awaiting the release of Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.
The 35-year-old actor is likely to resume the shoot of the film soon.
“It felt very good to resume work and I’m looking forward to my next shooting days,” he added.
