COVID-19: 'Operation Java' team in panic after police close dubbing studio in Kochi
Kochi: Crew members of the upcoming movie ‘Operation Java’ reported that they are in panic after the police closed a dubbing studio suspecting the presence of a COVID-19 patient. The police closed the studio for four hours when the dubbing of the movie was in progress.
‘Operation Java’ director Tharun Moorthy informed that the dubbing was interrupted after police closed down the studio.
"The police informed that a COVID-19 patient reached the studio on June 10. They also advised the whole crew to go on home quarantine. But by noon, the police phoned and said that they got confused about the studio and that the patient had not visited the studio where we were working," informed the director.
He noted that the police closed down the studio when the dubbing works were progressing adhering to the COVID-19 protocol.
"Now, the shooting of many movies have resumed. But our experience taught us that a simple carelessness may lead to a tragedy. When we watch the news over coronavirus on the media, we are not much bothered about it. But when we experienced panic over the disease, we felt devastated," added the director.
Vinayakan, Balu Varghese, Shine Tom Chacko and Irshad are playing lead roles in the movie.
The team 'Operation Java’ released a video featuring their experience of being in the fear of COVID-19.
