Coronavirus Scare | ‘Collective effort to fix a problem’: 83 actor Aditi Arya on postponing of film’s release
New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: A day after the release of Ranveer Singh’s upcoming sports drama was postponed by the makers, in view of the coronavirus curbs, debutant Aditi Arya, playing a pivotal role in the film, today said that the postponing of movie releases is collective effort by the film community to fight and prevent the spread of the highly contagious virus in the country.
The coronavirus has infected over 270 people in India, while 4 COVID-19 linked deaths were reported in the country so far.
The makers of Ranveer Singh's sports drama on Friday announced that they are postponing the release of the film over coronavirus concerns.
While the actor is eagerly waiting for the movie to be seen by the audience, she is also much up with the idea that safety is much important at this time of crisis. "The wait for the movie is there, that goes without saying but right now the crises of coronavirus are very serious," she said as reported by news agency ANI.
"I think it is not even right or fair to think about other things, while in such a situation. The postpone of film release is a part of the community doing something to fix a problem," the actor added.
She also pitched in her support of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's appeal for a 'Janta Curfew'. "I think the whole 'Janta' too should be following the idea," she said.
When asked how does it feel to be making her Bollywood debut in star-studded sports-drama like '83', the actor said the feeling is pretty much a 'surreal and emotional experience.'
"Two passions, cricket, and Bollywood coming together is a great attachment for the Indian audience and that being my first debut is pretty much surreal and emotional experience," Aditi said. The actor will be seen playing the wife of Mohinder Amarnath (Saqib Saleem) in the movie.
The highly contagious coronavirus that has claimed over 10,000 lives globally has also impacted the Bollywood industry and halted the release of many big films including Rohit Shetty's cop-action thriller 'Sooryavanshi'.
