Not possible for actors to maintain social distancing: Naresh

Senior actor and MAA President VK Naresh on Thursday said that it's not easy for actors to follow Coronavirus-related guidelines on set. Speaking on the sidelines of a meeting between the representatives of the Telugu film industry and the Telangana government, Naresh said that actors obviously can't do certain things if they have to make a film.

"Obviously, it's not possible to maintain social distancing if a scene requires two actors to be close to each other. It's not possible to wear face masks. Actors have to come in contact with make-up artists every day," Naresh said.

"One good thing is that the government has left it to the film industry to frame its own guidelines. We have requested the government to assign an observer for every film unit so that a watch can be maintained on whether crew members are wearing PPE suits, etc. We shall do whatever it takes to save the industry," Naresh added.

Film shootings are likely to restart in the first or second week of June.
