Mumbai (Whatsapp : +91 9372086563) Some good news are accompanied with a bad news, especially in the current pandemic situation. Rajesh Kumar, the lead of Edit II’s “Excuse Me Madam”, has won the COVID battle and is back on the sets shooting his show. And what came as a bad news was veteran actress Himani Shivpuri testing positive for the novel Coronavirus.
The actress, who is seen as Katori Devi Singh in Binaifer and Sanjay Kohli’s “Happu Ki Ultan Paltan”, shared the news on her Instagram account and wrote, “Good morning, this is to inform you that I tested positive for COVID. Anyone who has come in contact with me kindly get yourself tested.” She has been admitted to the hospital.
Talking about Rajesh, the actor, who was asymptomatic and under quarantine, has already begun shooting for his show in Filmcity. Scheduled to hit the TV screens from September 14, “Excuse Me Maadam” also features Nyra Banerjee and Sucheta Khanna. The show is the second season of Edit II’s “May I Come In Maadam?”.
The production house was already going through a tough time as it was not just Rajesh, even Sanjay Kohli, aka the King of Comedy, also tested positive for COVID-19. The ace producer is under home quarantine and still recovering. The multi-talented star got tested and got her results earlier today. She is currently admitted to Holy Spirit Hospital, Mumbai.
Talking about it, she said, “It is scary. One has to face it and identify it as Covid because I did an ad shoot but was getting the temperature and taking medicine and the fever would come down. Then I had my stomach upset. I got myself tested and it was detected positive. Since I happen to be 60-year-old and diabetic, the doctor advised me get admitted. Thank God I found a bed,” she says.
The actor advises everyone to not take this virus lightly. “It is my first day but I would say that the rate at which it is spreading, always take precautions and wear masks and avoid crowded places,” she says. We wish both, Sanjay Kohli and Himani Shivpuri, a speedy recovery.
