After bringing the film industry under its cover, United India Insurance Company now wants to customise special contingency insurance plans for television serials. The insurance company is working out modalities for the gap between the completion of the shooting and the actual release of the episodes.
In contrast to films, artistes in TV serials tend to change frequently, making budgeting unpredictable. Special contingency insurance plans for films are only possible provided the complete budget of the film and the entire shooting schedule are available in advance. United India Insurance has so far insured 10 major films with the total sum assured crossing Rs 120 crore.
