The second wave of Coronavirus in Maharashtra has gone on another level, shocking everyone. The daily number of cases went close to the 50,000 mark on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, it breached the said mark as the state recorded 57,074 cases. Consequently, the Maharashtra government on Sunday initiated a lockdown-like situation in the state till April 30. As a result, multiplexes and single screen cinemas will remain shut. The film and television shoots, however, have been allowed. Before taking this harsh decision, the chief minister of Maharashtra, Uddhav Thackeray, virtually met stakeholders from different sectors on Saturday April 4 to discuss the situation and to seek their cooperation.

While Papa Udit Narayan is worried about son, Aditya Narayan would like to reassure his father that he’s doing okay after being diagnosed as Covid positive. “I am physically weak but I am doing okay. No need to worry,” Aditya texted back when I inquired about his health. Says Aditya, “I am hospitalised for a few days. Parts of my body were in unbearable pain and I was in tears the first night. Thought I had messed up at gym. I didn’t suspect Covid as only the right lower-half was in pain at first, which was already not in good shape because of my calf tear last month. I had skipped a week of shooting for Indian Idol too.” He further admitted that he felt it coming for a while now. “It’s pretty complicated. But apparently the Covid virus has been in my system for a while. It took some time to show up in the tests. I am told sometimes the virus takes time to show up in the tests. The only certainty about this virus is that there’s no certainty.” Sadly Aditya’s newly-wedded wife Shweta i..
                 

SCOOP: As Maharashtra goes under lockdown, Sooryavanshi won't release on April 30

12 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Last week, Bollywood Hungama had reported that Sooryavanshi, the much awaited film starring Akshay Kumar and directed by Rohit Shetty, might not be able to release on April 30, as scheduled, due to the rising Coronavirus cases. The second wave has been quite extreme and cases in Maharashtra especially are at a record high, inching close to the 60,000 mark. As a result, the state government last week decided to impose a night curfew in the state, from 8:00 pm to 7:00 am. When the cases kept increasing despite this new rule, the authorities then decided to take the harsh decision of declaring a lockdown-like situation till April 30. Even when the night curfew was in place in Maharashtra, it had become clear that releasing a film in such circumstances would be suicidal as post 6 pm shows were ruled out. Hence, it was no surprise that films like Chehre and Bunty Aur Babli 2 were indefinitely postponed. Now with a lockdown in place and cinema halls shut till the end of month, the cinema se..
