Monsoon days often turn into nightmares for cast and crew of TV channels, especially for those with outdoor shooting schedules. Same is happening for the unit of Zee TV’s ‘Chhoti Bahu’ as they are busy shooting outdoors for the track these days.
Talking about shooting during the monsoon season, Rubina Dilaik says, “Monsoon days are most difficult to handle. We have outdoor shoots and due to monsoon we are lagging behind. Now we have to work even harder to bridge the gap. If it rains during the shoot we have to stop the shooting and wait till the rain stops. Though we can shoot all the indoor scenes at that time, the shooting of the urgent scenes gets stalled. And we are left with no other choice but to wait for the rain to get over. Once it stops we have to start all over again”.
“For many days we are all working in night outdoor shoots. When the rain obstructs the shoot we have to wait patiently and get back to the same shoot again. As we are already falling short of the episodes, we have to complete the track at a stretch. That means ‘no sleep only shoot’ throughout the night and back again for the shoot next day without sleep”, adds Rubina in a sad voice.
“It’s not for one day but ever since monsoon has started we are facing this problem. We all are eagerly waiting for this rain to go so that we are able to complete our shoots before time”, signs off ‘Chhoti Bahu’.
Well that’s really sad about ‘Chhoti Bahu’ but we can’t wait as the show must go on!
