As India starts lifting Coronavirus restrictions in a phased manner, shooting activities are gathering momentum in the television and film industry. In the past two weeks, several production houses have resumed production on their shows, following all the guidelines and precautionary measures mandated by the government.

We hear that after daily soaps, reality shows are also gearing up to commence production soon. The first reality show which will hit the shooting floor after a three-month-long lockdown is Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs on ZEE TV.
