Kochi: Close on the heels of resuming the outdoor shoots of serials, Zee Keralam on Tuesday has also started their in-house shootings strictly adhering to COVID 19 protocols. The shooting of ‘Funny Nights with Pearle Maaney’ hosted by actress Pearle Maaney has started with minimal technicians and the crew members, following social distancing norms, wearing masks, gloves, shields, and regularly sanitizing their hands. The floors of the shooting studio will be disinfected before and after the shoot. Each crew member will be given personal water bottles and other eatables during the break of the shoot. It is nearly after three months that the studio floors of ZEE Keralam have been opened for a shoot. ZEE Keralam has briefed the technicians and helpers about the protocols that have to be observed mandatorily during the shoot. The channel is also providing transportation and temperature check to everyone entering the studio.
“ZEE Keralam Channel show’s shootings are happening with the limited number of crew members as permitted by the government. There is a daily temperature check for everybody, and all members present in the shooting spot are compulsorily wearing masks throughout. Even the artistes remove their masks only for the specific shot. We try and finish the shoot with as less takes as possible to ensure banking of episodes, and we bank as much footage as possible within the day”, said Mr. Santosh J Nair, Business Head, Zee Keralam.
Pearle Maaney quoted that she is excited to get back to the shoot after a break. She added that ZEE Keralam has taken all the precautions for a smooth and safe progress of their shoot adhering to the COVID protocols.
