A ‘Bhakarwadi’ staff member has died of coronavirus while some others have tested COVID-19 positive. As a result, show producer JD Majethia gave an official confirmation that the entire cast and crew will be tested for coronavirus. A staff member from popular SAB TV show Bhakarwadi passed away due to coronavirus and things got worse for the show makers after a few crew members also tested positive for COVID-19. JD Majethia, who is the producer of the show confirmed the news, and to avoid the worsening situation the entire cast and crew of the show will be tested for the deadly virus.
“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 of their well being when they rejoin the shoot. He was reminded of 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”.
Mr. Majethia talked more about the challenging situation and said,
“We have consulted the best of doctors. We have done swab tests of more than 70 people including actors, technicians, workers, studio staff, and suppliers. A few of them have tested positive and they have been quarantined. We are following the government guidelines.”
Majethia laid stress on the fact that the entire unit will surely be more vigilant when they resume shooting for the show again in the upcoming future.
