Rajan Shahi’s leading show ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ on Star Plus has been hit by coronavirus resulting in the show coming to a screeching halt.
In a statement issued by Shahi’s Director’s Kut Productions, it confirmed that three actors – Sachin Tyagi, Swati Chitnis and Samir Onkar – had tested positive for coronavirus.
The statement said, “Actors Swati Chitnis, Sachin Tyagi, Samir Onkar, who are an integral part of ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’, have tested positive for COVID-19, but the three of them are asymptomatic. Due to safety reasons, they are in home quarantine. BMC had advised them for the same as they were showing no symptoms. Immediately, the entire on-crew team was isolated and tested. Four crew members have now tested positive. The BMC has been informed and the entire set has been sanitised and fumigated. Currently all of them are receiving medical attention in home quarantine. We are constantly in touch with them as their health is our priority. We stand by our commitment to safety and will continue to ensure that all safety and precautionary measures are adhered to.”
Samir Onkar mentioned that, “For the first time in my life I feel being positive is not so cool. Luckily I am asymptotic so there are not such reactions. But I have self isolated myself and also taking care of my diet and also doing some breathing exercise. God is great, everything will be fine.”
And even Swati Chittnis told that,” I would like to clarify that I have tested positive with covid19. Luckily, I am asymptomatic and doing well, recovering fast. I have been monitoring my health from time to time. Hopefully I will bounce back soon. Rajan Shahi is the best producer I have ever worked with and actors are well taken care of by his team.”
Sachin Tyagi too stated that, “I have tested positive for covid 19. Inspite of all the precautions that we took,it has happened.now i have to accept it and hope for the best. I am isolated at home and following all the health guidelines. I fell ill and went for the dengue test as all the symptoms were suggesting dengue. Dengue did come postive but so did covid. The good part is that I am asymptomatic so no real reason to worry. I want to thank everyone for their concern and all the good wishes that have been pouring in. Hoping for a speedy recovery and rejoining work soon.Thank you DKP for your support and tremendous efforts in taking each precaution that one could possibly take.”
