After a gathering with CINTAA on Monday, the FWICE issued a joint assertion on Tuesday asking producers to stick to authorities stipulated security measures with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic and clear the excellent dues of all of the artistes and technicians earlier than resuming the shoot.
“It is highly regretted to note that even after the strict directives issued by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to all the producers to clear the outstanding dues of the actors, workers and technicians pending prior to the announcement of the lockdown by the Government amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the producers have still not cleared the outstanding dues of our members. All the outstanding dues of our members should be cleared prior to the resumption of the shootings,” part of the joint assertion learn.
In the joint assertion, CINTAA and FWICE shared 10 factors, which all producers should comply by earlier than resuming the shoot. “Though we have always assured our best support to them they have not taken our concurrence on many issues resulting in lack of clarity and confusions. Many producers are taking unilateral steps of calling our members for shoot, this has only created a feeling of unrest and misguidance amongst the members, even before the resumptions of shoot,” CINTAA and FWICE added within the official assertion.

Earlier this week, make-up artist Mickey Contractor and celeb stylist Aastha Sharma shared pictures from the sets of their respective projects, wherein they are often seen carrying Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) kits together with face shields and different protecting gears. “On shoots, this is how it’s going to be for a while,” wrote Mickey Contractor whereas Aastha Sharma mentioned, “Safe and slow is the way to go… It is different and a little out of our comfort zone to follow this new normal but it is possible.”
Today was a big day for us at Wardrobist. We shot after 93 days!!! It was surreal, scary intitially but IT FELT SOOO GOOD TO BE BACK ON SET, to meet all my work friends and just to be there. Firstly a big thank you to all the Doctors, Nurses & all Professionals who wear this PPE kit on a daily basis for many hours. Hats off to you all. We were in it for 6+ hours and it was a challenge. Now the actual reality and the process that went behind. As a stylist working with a client, it is extremely crucial to ensure their safety. Sourcing was a bit of a task, but it was achievable. Sanitizing the garments and accessories was the most important and time consuming process, we ensured every safety precaution was taken. The production team & brand followed all necessary measures to ensure our safety and hygiene, limiting the number of people, we were all given PPE kits, regular sanitization in the vanity van and on set. Safe and slow is the way to go… It is different and a little out of our comfort zone to follow this new normal but it is POSSIBLE.. In such times, we must help each other to move ahead, I am so grateful for Today
