Sanjay stated that there is no substitute for an actor as no one can step in to do the job, unlike other professions. He said that there is a lot of physicality in an actor's job including the action sequences as well as intimate scenes and that becomes a cause of worry at a time when people would remain sceptical about their distance from another person. Sanjay Kapoor painted a bleak portrait of the film industry as he revealed that it would be difficult to not wear a mask on the sets and while acting when everyone would be expected to exercise caution.
