De De Pyaar De actress Rakul Preet Singh has also said “We were just left with 10-15 days of the shoot when lockdown happened. And we were waiting to start. They asked me if I was scared and I said no, let’s start because none of us knows when it is going to end and we don’t know how the vaccine is going to react, even when the vaccine comes. So, I just feel that as humans we need to adapt to the new normal and life goes on and you can’t keep sitting at home. Having said that, yes, take all the precautions. We had this huge guideline of what to follow on set, everyone was COVID tested including me as soon as I landed.”
Later on, Rakul has also revealed that her schedule is chalked out in a way to follow governmental guidelines perfectly. She has added “There is a quarantine stamp that happens for 14 days as soon as you land but they don’t do it if you are leaving before 7 days. So, my schedule has been planned in a way that I leave before 7 days and then come back again and I shoot and I leave again, just so that we are following all rules. It is a sight; it feels like what have we come to when you see everybody in PPE kits and masks and extreme caution is taken. But like I said, life goes on and we got to adapt. I think we as a species are good with adapting.”
