The studio falls under the containment zone; the filming of 'Dadagiri Unlimited Season 8' and 'Didi No. 1' are affected
With the rapid growth of positive cases of COVID-19, the blockade has been imposed in many areas in Calcutta, North and South 24 Pargana and Howrah. The studio in Rajarhat, where Didi No. 1 and Dadagiri unlimited Season 8 is being filmed, it falls under the containment zone where stricter blocking rules are now being imposed. Block Development Officer Rajarhat Block sent a notice to the channel broadcasting the program informing about the blockade (letter dated July 11). The channel authority was asked to immediately stop all activities related to filming in the studio included in Khamar Mauza , Rajarhat.
After this, filming for these non-fiction shows stopped. The filming location was soon moved to a hotel. Didi No. 1 shots will now be arranged in a different location.
Last week, these two nonfiction shows resumed. Hosts Sourav Ganguly and Rachna Banerjee joined the team of ‘ Dadagiri unlimited Season 8’ and ‘Didi No. 1’ after a gap of almost 4 months. Shootings were on full swing. Many artists attended the shoots in the particular studio soon after the teams resumed work. While ‘Didi No. 1’ has a few episodes as banking, ‘ Dadagiri unlimited Season 8’ needs to continue its shoot in order to air fresh episodes.
