Aadar Jain is presently taking pictures his second movie Hello Charlie, produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. Aadar’s movie is the primary one to start filming within the pandemic and the producers have taken each measure to make sure security for actors and crew on the set.
“Leading up to the shoot, I was a bit apprehensive at first given the current situation, but I have to give my producers Ritesh sir and Farhan sir as well as the entire production team of Excel Entertainment, all the credit for the level of safety measures they have taken to keep everyone protected! They have done much, much more than the guidelines set by the government to ensure that the shooting process is extremely safe and comfortable for everyone. It really felt good doing what I love the most,” says Aadar.
Shooting by the coronavirus pandemic will certainly make this a memorable second movie for Aadar. “It absolutely is memorable to be shooting for the film pre-COVID and during COVID. Never did anyone expect a time like this to arrive in our lives. No one that I know has seen something so unprecedented ever. However, I am a firm believer in making the most of what we have in any scenario,” says Aadar Jain.
Since taking pictures is such an intimate course of, Aadar Jain feels each particular person of the business must put private safety as a precedence to make sure each member on the units is protected. He lists out issues that he has been doing too. “As for the safety measures, I have not left home unless extremely necessary. From the time of the lockdown until now I have replaced my outdoor routine to a more digitized home-based one to hone all my skills. I feel I have used my time as efficiently as I would have,” he says.
Aadar provides, “We have to accept this is the new normal and get back to our work as long as we follow the usual protocols of social distancing and wearing a mask at all times as we are responsible for ourselves and others. At the shoot, as actors, we have to take our mask off for the shot – I would keep it in my back pocket and put it back on instantly after the shot whilst the entire crew around were in PPE suits and socially distancing at all times.”
Aadar reveals that Hello Charlie is a enjoyable movie that can entertain audiences totally. “It is an extremely special and lovable film. I can’t wait for everyone to watch it and I am sure they will have the same fun watching it as we had filming it,” Aadar Jain says.
