Frequent Covid tests, living in a social bubble with the crew close to the set.
The hectic shoot schedules amongst otherinnumerable precautions due to the pandemic can make work-life balance tough to achieve.
But it looks like the sets of Hello Mini 2 has a different story to tell. While the team lived in a social-bubble during the making of this thriller.
We hear there were some notorious pranksters on-set to make the mood lighter. And apparently, Goldie Behl and director Arjun Srivasstavahave stolen the show here…
Anuja Joshi, reminiscing about the shoot says,
“There wasn’t one day on set where Goldie and Arjun weren’t up to mischief. They’d hide my bags, my phone, and everything I own, basically. At first, I’d spend hours looking for my stuff but later, I realized everyone was in on it and I made a couple of allies of my own, if you know what I mean. We shot for the show during Covid times. It was a new and somewhat tough experience for all of us. In the beginning, there were times I felt anxious and overwhelmed by all that was going on but with a team like this, there’s nothing to complain about.”
“The team did a great job on safety – no one was allowed to step out anywhere other than to our hotel and shoot location. We were tested regularly and everything was methodically sanitized. Kudos to everyone who managed to pull it off”, adds the actress.
