Coronavirus affecting Bollywood


Almost the entire world is reeling under the deadly coronavirus emanating from China. The fear is so bad that even Bollywood is hit by the dreaded disease. Due to the infection and the public fear of being in confined in public places, makers are unable to release films in China and are also cancelling a few shoots even in India. Producer Ronnie Screwvala’s film ‘Sitara’ was to be filmed in the state of Kerala from February 12. But the region is hit by the virus and there have been a few confirmed cases of the disease. Owing to such a serious health scare, the team has wound-up its camps even before starting. As for the films’ release in China markets, there are no takers for new films.
