(10) Kya Artiste Card Compulsory hai?
Nobody can blackmail YOU for not having an ARTISTE CARD
A very important information regdg Artiste Card that BHAVSARS SAVDHAN ACTOR GROUP – BSAG is sharing with you all…!
Few days back one of the actor enquired with BSAG that sir, I had been to an audition n I was told that as I don’t have an Artiste Card I will have difficulty at the shooting if there is a raid by any union – what should I do…???!!!
Following is the gist of tele talk with Shri Sanjay Bhatia – committee member of CINTAA
Q – Is Cintaa card necessary for every actor if he/she wants to act in TV OR FILM*
A – NO
Q – Actors are oftenly terrified that if CINTAA or any other union raids at shtg floor and if any actor is caught without CINTAA or other union card then they will be thrown out of shtg floor or fined…is this true??!!!
A – NO….
First of all, CINTAA doesn’t do any type of raids now.
So the question of any actor being caught for non-possession of CINTAA card doesn’t arise at all.
In fact, no one/any union has the right to ask/insist for any union’s card to actors.
Secondly, if at all, Cintaa office bearer visits any shooting floor then it is for the sole purpose of knowing/enquiring about the well being of actors and to know whether Cintaa actors/members are facing any problem with the functioning of work at shooting or any payment issues.
Q – Is the production house penalised for casting non-cintaa actors..??!!*
A – NO
Cintaa also doesn’t penalise any production house or casting director for casting non-cintaa card holder/actor.
There is no vigilance section of CINTAA which does this kind of raids.
IT IS TOTALLY VOLUNTARY FOR AN ACTOR TO BE OR NOT TO BE MEMBER OF CINTAA and NOBODY (Casting Director or Co ordinator or Production House) CAN FORCE YOU TO GET ANY UNION’S CARD IN EXCHANGE OF ROLE
More information about CINTAA can b obtained from their office
