Actor Salman Khan and the team of Radhe – Your Most Wanted Bhai, helmed by Prabhu Dheva, kicked off their final schedule earlier in October. After more than six months, the actor returned to the sets and began filming in a very different environment altogether. The shoots recently resumed but the precautionary measures that have to be taken in order to ensure that everyone is safe have to be of producer’s utmost priority. Keeping the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) along with additional measures, the makers of the film took to the hills recently to shoot.
Before the pandemic brought shoots to a pause, the film had one song and some action scenes left to be shot. The makers are now filming the song in Aamby Valley, near Lonavla. All the cast and crew have gone through the COVID tests and a team of doctors has also examined everybody on the set. The team hopes to complete the shoot without any COVID cases or hassles of that sort during the 15-18 days schedule ahead. Producers Sohail Khan and Atul Agnihotri are maintaining the utmost level of care and safety throughout.
Showcasing the new normal on the sets of Radhe, you witness from cast to the crew members, everyone is wearing masks, sanitization is happening simultaneously and everyone is getting checked properly before they enter the set. “I never thought that I will have to see a day like this after doing over 200 films. This is a time when the whole world is in trauma. But, even in this situation, we are all connected with each other – wearing masks, social distancing, hand wash, sanitization – everything will be focused on and given utmost importance,” says Jackie Shroff in the video.
He adds, “While shooting the film, we will have to keep in mind that it’s not just me but all of us. It’s a big unit but everyone is wearing masks and maintaining social distancing. Actors will have to remove the masks to say their dialogues. We have to be very careful. I am thankful to the Radhe unit for looking after, everybody. We have to care for ourselves, we are out in the open, we are entertainers, film people, we have to take care. God’s been kind!”
In the behind-the-scenes video, Randeep Hooda, and Disha Patani join Salman Khan as they begin the final schedule. The actor, in the end, says ‘Thoda time lagega bhai, 6 mahine ke baad aaya hoon (It will take some time as I have come back after six months). He was shooting a dance sequence surrounded by bikes and background dancers.
Taking all the necessary precautions, the team is shooting the sequences at multiple locations. With Salman, Disha, Jackie Shroff, and others shooting along with the crew, the production is taking utmost care for one and all. All departments have been tested for Covid-19. Additionally, all cars and tempo travellers had been sanitized before departure. A health and safety officer along with a doctor and ambulance are present on the set to check all crew members. Signages and colours bands for bifurcation are being maintained and followed.

All government mandates, insurances are being strictly followed throughout. Since the entire team is staying together, the production is getting packaged food and maintaining a sanitized kitchen. Set, surroundings, and rooms are being sanitised thrice a day. A team has been inducted especially of trained personnel to dispose of the PPE kits and masks after use in the correct manner as per guidelines provided.
