According to Gujarat E Exclusive, Mayur Vakani tested positive for COVID19 after returning to Ahmedabad to complete a shoot in Mumbai. Currently, the actor has been admitted to SVP Hospital in Ahmedabad where he is undergoing treatment. However, there is no official confirmation on this yet.
Last year, when the first wave of coronavirus hit the country, Parth Samthaan, Mohena Kumar, Shrenu Parikh, Gautam Gulati and several other actors tested positive and were observing quarantine in their respective homes.
Meanwhile, rumors that Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah producer Asit Kumarr Modi was being rude to his actors were touring the internet. Actress Sunayana Fozdar, who plays the role of Anjali, cleared the air during an exclusive conversation with Koimoi. She said, “I’m not even aware of this rumor actually. It’s a bit shocking but Asit sir is the reason I’m on the show. From day one, he consistently treated me like I was a child. He doesn’t come to the set very often because of the pandemic. But he will always make a point of asking me “if I’m okay if all is well” via his production team. “
Sunayana added, “Jo ship captain hota hai, baki sab bhi waise hi hote hai. He’s so busy dealing with so many actors for so many years. This is no yaar joke. But his production teams make sure everything is fine every month. Even the directors also treat me like a child.
