"Till the time we aren't given security and protection, members of FWICE won't shoot outside Mumbai, especially Thane, Mira Road, Vasai, Naigaon and other surrounding areas," BN Tiwari, President, FWICE, told reporters.
Tiwari said it is the job of the government to provide security to the artistes and they will not shoot until their safety is ensured.
"In our meeting of federation, all 28 unions associated with us, have decided that until the government doesn't assure us of security, our five lakh members won't shoot beyond Mumbai's Dahisar. These instances have happened in the past and it needs to stop," he added.
Some team members of the web series on Thursday also met Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, who assured that strict action will be taken against the culprits.
According to a police official, there was a dispute over selection of a spot for the shoot, following which some men attacked the show's crew members. PTI
