In what seems to be a direct outcome of last week’s attack on Fixerr‘s set, workers refused to work on the sets of a Sajid Nadiadwala film till they were given assurance about the permissions for the shoot as well as the protection made available for them. Yes, a set was supposed to be constructed in Mira Road over the weekend, but the workers refused to work till they were given written assurance. The producers were given a couple of days to get everything in place and it is now all in order. The workers were given all the assurances and have now started work on the sets. However, a shoot for a Sajid Nadiadwala film that was scheduled from June 25 – 27, may be delayed. The set will not be ready, so there might be a ripple effect!

Scenario

But the good part is that work has resumed. As BN Tiwari, President of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), told us exclusively, “A set was being constructed in Mira Road. But workers refused to work without assurance. The producers were told to submit in writing an assurance, till then no work was carried out. They had been given two to three days for this. If there is no police permission and arrangements, then workers will not work. Only when the police says shoot here, there will be no issue, then it is fine. Now, the producers submitted all the documents and assurances and the work has begun again on the set.”

Gangeshwar Srivastav, Treasurer of FWICE and General Secretary of Film Studios Setting and Allied Mazdoor Union also shed some light. He told us exclusively, “There is no safety of our workers. So we told them, till the time police permission is not there and the production house doesn’t take responsibility of the safety of our workers, we won’t work. They agreed to it, they gave us everything we wanted in writing and the matter is now resolved. Police permission is also in place. A list of workers they’ve hired has also been submitted because sometimes they might say that this person was not working for us.”

Clarification

We heard the film in question was Housefull 4. So we contacted Sajid Nadiadwala’s team to know if a set for Housefull 4 was being constructed in Mira Road? They denied it! But when asked if any other Sajid Nadiadwala film set is being constructed in that area, there was no response.
