Says a source, “Kiara and Tabu too are going for the test or may have already got it done. Tabu was shooting with Kartik yesterday, but Kiara wasn’t. There are many actors in ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’, which includes Sanjay Mishra, Rajpal Yadav, Milind Gunaji, Rajesh Sharma. Hope everything will be fine soon.”
Elaborating on the stoppage, the source said, “They had a 2-day break, today and tomorrow as they are changing some colors on the set. But they were definitely supposed to shoot from Wednesday. That now however seems very unlikely. The second wave has driven everyone crazy and it seems to be sweeping very strongly.”
Talking about Kartik, the source said, “Kartik comes from a family of doctors. He was incredibly cautious about his sanitisation and mask. There was a boy constantly behind him, with a sanitiser in hand. Kartik did not remove his mask for even a second other than when he was filming the scene. It is really puzzling as to how he contracted the infection. Besides the test that rendered the positive result was a routine one which had been made compulsory at least twice a week on the ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ set. Kartik had no symptoms whatsoever.”
“The shoot of ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’ had only recently kicked off after a long delay. This schedule which was underway, was arranged with so much effort in having the combined dates of everyone- and hence the stoppage that has come about is really unfortunate. Frankly nothing else can be done but wait,” the source concluded.
Get well soon, Kartik.
