India's film and TV industry has decided to stop shooting from 19 to 31 March, in a decision that is expected to cost the industry millions of dollars.

The decision was taking following a meeting between several industry bodies. Producers already on shoots both in India and overseas have been given three days to wrap up work, a joint statement read.

India's main film industry, Bollywood, releases more than 1,000 films per year.

Meanwhile, Indian superstar Amitabh Bachchan broke a years-old tradition and asked people not to gather outside his house in Mumbai on Sunday.

Hundreds of people gather outside Bachchan's house every Sunday to catch a glimpse of the actor who appears on his balcony to wave at people.
