We know that the second wave of coronavirus is taking a toll on Indians. The condition is horrific due to a lack of resources and several other reasons. Many states have imposed many restrictions to control the spread of the virus. Now, as per the latest news, Jimmy Shergill and National award-winning director Eeshwar Nivas were booked for flouting COVID-19 precautions. With them, 35 others were also taken into custody. This happened in Punjab’s Ludhiana. The team was shooting for the remake of an Israeli web series, Your Honor. All of this happened in a private school and the shoot took place without any permission from authorities. A case was also registered against them on Tuesday night. They had exceeded the curfew time by 2 hours. A full-fledged crew of 150 members was shooting at 8 p.m. The police raided the place at this time.

Nivas was arrested along with others. However, they were later granted bail. A case has been registered under Sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and 269 (negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life) of the Indian Penal Code and Section 3 of the Epidemic Diseases Act.
In a past interview, the actor had opened up about directing. “Direction is something that I love. It’s the most fascinating thing ever. It’s either being in front of the camera or behind the camera. If ever I become something apart from an actor, it’s definitely a director,” he had said.
He had added, “Every film I watch, I just see people perform and how it’s shot. I am enjoying being an actor but one day if I have to do something else, then I think I will get into direction.”
