FWICE also confirmed that no such decision or guideline shall be finalized unless all the Producers’ Associations agree to the same.”

The statement further read: “Therefore, we have to inform all producers and everyone else concerned with the film and entertainment industry that any decision or guideline relating to the industry restarting after Coronavirus or any such the matter shall be valid and subsisting only if the same is countersigned and authenticated besides FWICE by all the Producers’ Association’s including by President of IMPPA.”
