She said, “The TMC fans have been so loyal and we needed to give them what they wanted. The lockdown meant that we had to halt production right in the middle and this caused quite a bit of stress for us. However, the minute the lock down eased up, we put the very best measures in place for safety and security for cast and crew, limited the numbers and went back into production”.
