"AY and the entire production made sure everybody was quarantined for 40 days before we went on set; all the cast and crew", he said.
"And before we got on set everyone was tested and we made sure everyone was negative. That's when we got on set. After we were all set, we made sure that everyone was wearing masks, including the crew and cast.

"...We did not have any issues; nobody got any symptoms of COVID-19 throughout the shoot. So, for every three days, they made sure we were tested and we kinda made sure everyone was safe.
"And I was super glad to work in a set like that where everybody felt safer. It was unfortunate that we were working in that kind of environment because it wasn't the case before but this is the truth and we have to accept it.
