Hyderabad: The general public looks up to the film fraternity for inspiration. On Friday morning, however, they looked at some of them with a different feeling.

Some movie artistes were seen moving around without face mask and without observing the social distancing norm at the film chambers. The occasion, telecast soon after, was an event got up to introduce members of a panel contesting the Movie Artistes Association’s elections in September.

 

Actor Prakash Raj is planning to contest for the post of president of the association.
