Balan, who is set to play a forest officer in the film, said the ideal situation will be to resume shoot post monsoon and the team is hoping to go on floors in October in the jungles of Madhya Pradesh.

"The situation is such that we will have to take one day at a time. Shooting generally will require you to be that much more cautious now. The good thing is we will be shooting in the jungle. We are not in an enclosed place and that I think is a good thing. Hopefully, we will be safer. Fingers crossed," the Shakuntala Devi star told PTI.

Balan, 41, said people will have to exercise caution as they resume work and other normal activities.

"We can only take precautions and hope everything turns out fine and everyone is safe. I don''t know what it will be shooting outside the city," she said, adding that two-thirds of the shoot is yet to be finished.

Produced by Vikram Malhotra of Abundantia Entertainment, Sherni is billed to explore the man-wildlife conflict.
