Just like many others in the entertainment industry, actor Amar Baharin is glad to finally be able to return to work.

Since the start of the movement control order in March, Amar’s filming activities have been suspended. In an interview with mStar, The Star’s Malay-language portal, the actor said he is happy to be back to work as his savings have been diminishing.

The introduction of new standard operating procedure (SOP) for productions is also something he is happy with.

Amar, who is currently on set for the drama Ayat-Ayat Halal, is relieved that he will not have to film intimate scenes for the time being, as filmmakers are required to practice social distancing.

“Romance does not necessarily make a good script. I think the new SOP just proves that the show can go on even if we cannot shoot intimate scenes, ” he told Harian Metro.

“Seeing as I’m married, I also have to consider my wife’s feelings. Whenever possible, I always try to avoid being intimate with other actresses, ” he continued.

Amar told Mstar his experiences with the new normal on set: “Overall, I think it’s business as usual; we just have to be more careful when doing makeup. Of course, everyone has face masks on. We also keep a safe distance from each other during mealtimes – only two people per table!”

At the end of the day, Amar always makes sure to take a shower before spending time with his wife and two kids.

“It’s definitely a new habit, but I can be confident that I’m keeping my family safe,” he said.
