Mumbai, April 16 (IANS) Bollywood filmmaker Shoojit Sircar predicts that production of children will get postponed as marriages are getting shelved due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

However, netizens disagree with the filmmaker and have offered him reasons why his prediction won’t come true.

The filmmaker tweeted on Thursday: “Between Feb/Mar/Apr 2020 approx. 2.5 million (25 lakhs) Marriages will get postponed.. That means the production of children will also get shelved or postponed.”
