Sub inspector Harjit Singh said that 150 crew members were shooting for the series at Arya Senior Secondary School in Ludhiana at 8pm, two hours after curfew had been enforced to check the spread of Covid-19.
The lockdown has been imposed from 6pm to 5am in Punjab to curb the spread of the pandemic.
Nivas and crew members Akashdeep Singh and Mandeep Singh were arrested and granted bail. When the police reached, a court scene was being shot for the second season of Your Honor in which Shergill plays the role of a judge. It is an adaptation of an Israeli web series by the same name.
