Bipasha says that though the unit members are equipped with Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) kits and face shields while actors have to shoot without protective gear. Bipasha Basu wrote, "All shoots should stop till the situation is little better. Actors are the most vulnerable... most of the unit is protected with all the PPE, gloves, masks and shields. But actors have to shoot without any protection. It's just plain risky."
