None of us were used to wearing masks for the whole day on the sets. Also, at every point, be it on or off the camera, we had to consciously maintain social distancing with each other. Shooting an emotional or a dramatic scenes used to be a tad difficult. During the lockdown, some of my colleagues from the industry shot from their homes on mobile phones but with Netaji, this wasn't possible, as a lot of time and effort went behind getting the look right, which wasn't easy to execute from home.
