Shooting for serials resumed in Karnataka last month after a month-long break owing to the nationwide lockdown. The state government had allowed for Kannada serial producers to shoot after the Kannada Television Association President SV Shivakumar met Chief Minister Yediyurappa in the first week of May. The permissions were given with guidelines about do’s and dont’s that crews would have to follow. The Association had decided to ask their crews to return to work from May 25.

Towards the end of May, Tamil Nadu government also allowed serials to resume shooting from May 31, and increased the earlier cap of having only 20-member crews at the shoot to 60 members, including the actors and technology assistants.
