Ever since TV actors started working amid the pandemic, a number of celebrities have tested positive for COVID-19. A while ago, seven cast and crew members from the TV show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and two members from Kaun Banega Crorepati tested positive. Now, according to latest reports, TV actor Shweta Tiwari also tested positive for COVID-19.
Shweta Tiwari, who is currently playing Guneet Sikka in Mere Dad Ki Dulhan told a popular news channel that she is under home-quarantine with her daughter Palak. Her son, however, has moved to her husband's place after she started showing symptoms.
“I developed cough on September 16. Tony and Deeya (makers of her current show) said the sequence of marriage with Varun was very important and even otherwise, I felt I should not take any chances. I headed to get myself tested. Thankfully I have sufficient rooms (inside her house). So, I have quarantined myself," she said.
"Palak is also very particular about social distancing. It’s a tough time no doubt. Even on the sets, it’s so difficult to shoot. It’s so edgy at times. When will we come out of this pandemic?” she added. The actress said that she has been drinking loads of hot water and is now feeling much better. Shweta's next test will be on September 27 and she is under quarantine till October 1st.
The shooting for her show has been stalled until she recovers. Varun Badola, her co-star recently tested negative for COVID and his wife confirmed the same on her Instagram. His wife, Rajeshwari, however, has tested positive and is recovering under doctor's supervision.
