Bombay High Court on Friday quashed and set aside conditions in two Government Resolutions barring elderly artistes on sets.
In a relief to elderly actors and entertainment crew, the Bombay High Court on Friday quashed and set aside conditions imposed by the Maharashtra government through two Government Resolutions (GR), which barred any cast or crew members above 65 years at the shooting site of fiction or non-fiction programming during a pandemic.
However, the court clarified that all advisories issued by the governments in view of Covid-19 pandemic for persons above 65 years of age, will be applicable to elderly cast or crew members visiting shooting sets.
A division bench of Justice S J Kathawalla and Justice R I Chagla on Friday passed ruling on the pleas challenging the restrictions. Along with actor Pramod Pandey (69), Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) through advocate Ashok Saraogi also approached the HC seeking to quash and set aside conditions imposed by the government on May 30.
