Zee Tamil resumes shoots; to air original content from 27 July

NEW DELHI: Complying with the directives issued by the Tamil Nadu State government, Zee Tamil has resumed shoots of the fiction shows. The viewers of Zee Tamil can expect original content and hit the resume button on the journeys of their favourite characters from 27 July. 

As an initiative to spread cheer and positivity among their viewers, Zee Tamil has also launched a digital and on-air comeback campaign with the tagline ‘Idhaythal inaivom, idhaiyum kadapom’– which translates to - if we come together in spirit, this too shall be overcome.

The utmost priority for Zee Tamil as the channel resumes shoot is to ensure the safety of all personnel and actors on set. Several measures have been put in place to ensure the same. A team of safety experts is brought in to sanitize and disinfect the sets, prior to shoots. This is a 9-hour process that is conducted prior to shoot schedule. In its efforts to ensure that every measure is taken to mitigate risks, a government approved team is invited to the sets to conduct a thorough inspection once the sanitisation procedure is complete. 

Before entering and leaving the set each day, provisions have been made for mandatory thermal screening for all members of the cast and crew. The shoots will strictly be held indoors and in a closed environment with a maximum of 60 persons present at any given time. Safety kits with soaps, sanitizers gloves and masks have been made available to members on the set. When not in front of the camera, actors will mandatorily wear face masks on the set. To further reduce risk factors, the actors will do their own make up in order to avoid unnecessary contact with other members from the crew. Arrangements for food that is cooked in a hygienic environment will also be made available at the sets. 

From 27 July, the fiction shows will be airing six days a week in new timings: 

Rettai Roja – 1.30 – 2 pm

This has helped establish a continued connect between our viewers and their favourite stars while shoots were on pause. We are thankful to our ardent viewers for their continued support during this time and eagerly look forward to bringing to them original and exciting new content”, said Zee Entertainment Enterprises south cluster head Siju Prabhakaran.
