COVID-19 is the worst thing the human race has witnessed in a long time. On the positive side, some jaw-dropping innovations were seen in the midst of the crisis. One of these is a bio bubble or a bio-secure bubble that has been discussed due to the IPL.
Conversely, the bio bubble is a hosting arrangement for large-scale events that usually take place behind closed doors with strict restrictions. This year’s IPL follows the same system for all of its matches.
Just days ago, Maharashtra’s Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray announced the lockdown as restrictions until April 30. From now on, filming of all TV shows and movies has stopped. Biggies like Pathan, Tiger 3 and Vikram Vedha are suffering tremendously. Since filming for many projects is on hold, film organizations are considering offering a bio bubble option to CM if the restrictions extend beyond May 1.
Ashok Dubey (FWICE General Secretary) said: “If the lockdown continues beyond May 1, we want to submit a proposal to the CM to allow filmmakers to shoot in a bio-bubble, [along the lines of the IPL]. Some big studios are shooting outside of Maharashtra; those who cannot do so wish to follow the IPL format, ”as Mid Day reported.
Some film organizations have already spoken to SenseGiz Technologies, the company behind the IPL biological bubble and which provides a safe environment for cricketers. An insider revealed, “In addition to hosting actors and team in the same hotel, security solutions will include geolocation, tracing historical contacts, securing real-time data on breaches and identifying them through to devices on the set and in hotels.
