The bandh brought shootings of several movies and TV serials to a halt here.
Most of the film studios including Filmcity, Filmistan, Mehboob and Filmalaya either had no bookings for shooting or cancelled their scheduled shoots.
"Due to the bandh no shoots for movies or TV serials were scheduled for today. There was no booking also," Vidya Zode, assistant accountant from Filmcity, said.
