Last month, the Maharashtra government issued an order allowing the shooting of films, television serials and digital series in non-containment zones of Maharashtra. The order came as a response to The Federation of Western India Cine Employees' letter to the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Uddhav Thackeray, seeking permission to restart the post-production activities of film, shows and other entertainment projects. Issuing a Government Resolution, the Cultural Affairs Ministry said that producers will have to conduct pre-production and post-production works by adhering to the guidelines stated by the government.
