BREAKING: IFTDA chairman Ashoke Pandit wants some restrictions lifted from the guidelines set for shooting resumption, writes to Maharashtra CM

Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray has given a leeway to the film and television producers so that they can begin shooting their films and TV shows. Well, The Maharashtra CM had permitted FWICE that they could start shooting only if certain strict guidelines are followed.

However, now it seems as though following those guidelines too are proving to be difficult for the filmmakers and film producers. That is why the Indian Film & Television Directors’ Association have brought out another letter seeking for the removal of certain guidelines.


According to one such guideline, any person above 65yrs of age shall not be allowed to work, which means actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Paresh Rawal, Annu Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Dharmendra, Shakti Kapoor, Mithun Chakraborty, Pankaj Kapur, Jackie Shroff, Danny Denzongpa, Dalip Tahil, Tinnu Anand, Rakesh Bedi, Kabir Bedi and others. Legendary Directors, Film Makers & Writers viz. Anil Sharma, David Dhawan, Subhash Ghai, Shyam Benegal, Mani Ratnam, Prakash Jha, Shekhar Kapur, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Mahesh Bhat, Priyadarshan, Gulzar, Javed Akhtar who are beyond this age group will be restricted!

Take a look at the letter right here –
