Manoj talked about his symptoms saying that the headaches irritate him, “ You cannot sit at a place for a long time and you feel weak and uncomfortable. I am mostly sleeping or resting because of the symptoms. ” Talking about shooting in these times, he gave credit to the production house for ensuring that protocol was followed. “The new conditions bring their limitations but we have to get used to it. We completed the film only because we followed the protocol. Even though sanitizers and masks have become a part of daily life, we must continue to work.”
