Due to the current circumstances, actress Mouni Roy was stuck in the UAE for about four months and now, as per reports in Hindustan Times, she has flew down to London. She will begin shooting for a film there, “details of which will be revealed by the makers soon”.
Speaking about her flight experience, she assets, “We are calling it the new normal while waiting for the new world but it’s not just as much fun as it used to be. I used to look forward to the long flights as I like reading and watching movies and sleeping in between for 15-20 minutes every hour. But the experience was not like that at all. In fact, it was quite unnerving waiting at the airport and later on the flight. Guess, it will take some time getting used to this manner of travel, as this was the first time I travelled after the lockdown.”
She is delighted to commence shooting and will be putting up in London for a month. Prior to the commencement of the shooting, the makers plan to do some prep this week. Roy has been away from Mumbai since a long time now and says she is unsure of whether she would be able to make it back to Mumbai post the shoot ends next month. “I don’t really know how the situation would be. I will be able to decide a week prior to the shoot’s end, depending on International flights and the situation in Mumbai and then I’ll take a call,” she says.
Roy admits she feels quite hysterical to shoot amid Covid-19. “I am quite petrified and nervous as actors are the only people on a set, who wouldn’t wear any masks or gloves while shooting or in a shot. But I was dying to work and be on a set, so we kind of have to get used to the new normal. Let’s see how it goes. It is my first time under the circumstances, so I will know and understand better as we start shooting. I have been promised that all the safety measures would be taken and social distancing would be practised on set. So, I am hoping for the best. One day at a time,” she concludes
