Anupamaa fame Rupali Ganguly had tested positive for COVID-19 and informed fans about the same. She wrote a long and heartfelt message for fans on her Instagram account and asked everyone to stay safe and healthy. This is what she wrote for all her loved ones and well wishers- “MA Corona Devi Tu hai ki nahiiiii. ( mild to asymptomatic) Ye kya hua kaise hua kab hua Jab hua tab hua …. chhodo ye na poocho. This is the kind of positive I didn’t want to be. Take care and stay safe everyone and keep showering ur love on my family and Anupamaa family. [sic]”
The show’s producer Rajan Shahi has now released a statement on her health. This is what he had to say: “Rupali Ganguly, the lead actress in the show Anupamaa, informed me today that she has tested positive for COVID-19. She is asymptomatic and by the grace of God doing well. Rupali is taking all the necessary precautions and is presently in-home quarantine. I wish Rupali a speedy recovery. We at DKP (Directors Kut Productions) are committed to the safety of our cast and crew. I have ensured that all guidelines are followed on the set. The BMC is informed and the sets are fumigated and sterilized as per the protocol.”
He added, “Ashish Mehrotra, who plays Paritosh in Anupamaa, too was diagnosed with COVID-19 few days back. Though he was not shooting since a very long time, as soon as the symptoms were detected he received medical help and also quarantined himself. He is already on his road to recovery, and in a few days once he tests negative he will be resuming shoot. I am constantly in touch with Rupali, Aashish and the entire team as their health is our priority. DKP and I stand by our commitment to safety and will continue to ensure that all measures prescribed are being adhered to.”
