“We had not thought of any possibility of going out for the shoot because the guidelines that came out 3-4 days ago didn’t mention a ban on shooting. According to those guidelines we had to take everyone’s RT-PCR tests in the set. So, we get everyone tested and four people tested Covid positive. We have already home-quarantined them because while taking the test they were showing some symptoms. We got everyone tested on Friday, April 9. We have been taking precautions during the shoot. If anyone was a little sick, we would ask them not to come to the shoot. Kush Shah, who plays Goli on the show and some production people, are positive. There is no one positive in the main cast. All those who are positive made also home quarantine and everyone else is safe.”
