Actress Mimi Chakraborty and actors Jeet and Biswanath Basu have decided to go into self-isolation for 14 days after their return this morning from London, England, via Dubai. They were abroad to shoot for their upcoming film Baazi, directed by Anshuman Pratyush and his team.

Following the government's order that travellers from the United Kingdom, the European Union, and the European Free Trade Association would be temporarily banned from today, the cast and crew decided to return early. The team has had an initial check-up on their arrival in India.

Actor-producer Jeet aka Jeetendra Madnani announced the update on Twitter yesterday. "We have decided to cancel the shoot of our next Baazi in London and we are returning on immediate basis back to our respective nests with the entire cast and crew. Let's all pray that we come out of this situation really soon," he had shared.

Yesterday, Eastern Indian Motion Pictures Association announced a directive to cancel all shootings of films, television shows and web-series till 31 March. Single screens and multiplexes have also been shutdown in West Bengal till the end of March.

Before the announcement from the EIMPA, several production houses took their own initiative to cancel their shoots, including for Srimanta Sengupta’s Abar Bochhor Koori Pore. Several screenings of current films have also been withdrawn from theatres, including Indrasis Acharya’s Parcel (2020). Raj Chakraborty Productions also postponed the April release of Dharmajuddha (2020) on Monday, 16 March.
