When we talk about Marathi films Producer Nitin Prakash Vaidya’s name is always top of the list for his amazing content. While talking about this film he said, “Shooting in this period is challenging. But if see the number of Covid cases in foreign countries it is much less compared to our Maharashtra and India, so the risk is very less which is why I choose London. I have also done a lot of shooting here in the past. Our film unit is only of 20-25 people. Before heading towards London, for everyone’s safety, we also started the immunity boost up course as per my doctor’s guidance. Before leaving India each one of us did 3 Covid tests and after getting the negative result I did the work of visa and tickets. We also took Covid insurance and the use of sanitizer and mask is also done. Risk and fear will be there but we will complete our shoot by following all the safety measures.”
Prarthana Behere had given some glimpse of this film to her fans by posting some pictures online. Talking about the film she said, “Before heading towards London all the crew had done their Covid tests and after getting the results negative we got the permission to go to London. The changes and effects which corona has done in everyone’s life were seen at the airport as the whole atmosphere was completely changed. All the safety measures were also been followed in-plane, as I was the only passenger on the 3 seat row. Another benefit of shooting here is that people are less so social distancing is followed very well and the use of mask and sanitizer is also being done.”
Rinku Rajguru will also be seen in his film which will be in Marathi & Hindi. This will be Rinku’s first foreign travel due to this film. “My journey from Mumbai to London was filled with excitement. It was good to see that all the safety measures being followed at both the airports & I will also follow safety measures everywhere,” said Rinku Rajguru.

Our whole team is always traveling together as a group and we only have permission to travel from Hotel to set and set to Hotel so there is no risk and each one of us follows safety measures.” Nitin Prakash Vaidya’s upcoming film ‘ Choomantar’ with this strong star cast will increase craze among fans.
