Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actor Sachin Tyagi and other cast members have reportedly tested positive for COVID-19. According to reports by SpotboyE, while the shooting was underway at Filmcity around 10 am, it was soon halted as few team members reportedly tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
A source close to the portal was quoted saying, “Sachin Tyagi was running fever and hence he got himself tested. His results came day before, after which a few other crew members who also felt symptoms, got themselves tested. Some of them came negative and some positive. As of now, more members of the show including actors have got their tests done and now they are waiting for the results.”
Sachin who plays Manish Goenka on the show had recently celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi with crew members on the set.
Previously, Ekta Kapoor’s Kasautii Zindagii Kay and JD Majethia’s Bhakharwadi had stopped shooting due to COVID-19. While actor Parth Samthaan had tested positive for the virus, a Bakharwadi crew member died of the virus last month.
Informing about the crew member’s death, Bhakharwadi creator JD Majethia had told Mumbai Mirror online in an interview, “A sad incident took place on the sets of Bhakharwadi. A tailor from our crew complained of weakness on July 11. The doctor gave him medicine for cold and weakness. He worked on July 12 and the next day he asked for a leave as he wanted to go home. As a rule of our production house, we keep in regular contact with people who are unwell. We also ask them to produce a doctor’s certificate when they rejoin the shoot. He was reminded on a group on July 19 via message as he had not replied to our calls a couple of times. He went for a test on July 20 and we were shocked to hear about the news of his demise when we called on July 21. We are in touch with a family member and are doing the needful.”
Meanwhile, Parth Samthaan resumed shooting earlier this month after informing fans that he had tested negative for the virus.
