While the Coronavirus cases are on rise, the film industry – which already suffered a big loss due to lockdown- has resumed film shoots by complying with all the govt regulations. But for production houses, it is quite a daunting task to keep deadly virus away from sets everyday. It is further delaying the shoot and resulting in losses for the makers.
To avoid financial loss & other unwanted problems while shooting in this highly vulnerable situation, the makers of Taapsee’s starrer ‘Looop Lapeta’, Atul Kasbekar and Tanuj Garg, have decided to cover their film for COVID-19 insurance.
According to producer Atul, “If one person from the film unit gets infected with Coronavirus, entire cast and crew should get home quarantine for about 2 weeks. So, the shooting will eventually be stopped during that time. The COVID-19 insurance will cover up the loss incurred for those non-shooting days and currently the draft work for insurance policy is underway.”
If everything goes as per plan, Loop Lapeta will be the first Bollywood film to get Covid-19 insurance policy.
