Writer and director Nitin Kumar Gupta, who recently made the web movie LAC, was one of the first celebs to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in January 2021. As a doctor at KEM Hospital in Mumbai, he recently received the second dose of the vaccine and is now vaccine certified. Nitin said, “I received the first dose last month and the second dose this week from Oxford Covishield vaccine. I had the privilege of receiving the vaccine at my alma mater KEM hospital from where I obtained my MBBS degree. “
The director of Sayonee shared his experience and said, “I did not experience any side effects with either the first or second dose. Some recipients have had a fever and weakness for a day or two, which is normal for any vaccination. “However, Nitin confessed that although he is confident of meeting people now, he is still trying to follow the precautions. He said, “I feel more secure meeting people now, although I still take the same precautions that I used to take, i.e. social distancing and masking at all times.”
“There are variants of the virus that the vaccine does not protect against, and according to clinical studies, the vaccine does not offer complete protection, so it doesn’t hurt to be extra careful!” he concluded. Nitin is currently waiting for the release of his Rahul Roy, Nishant Singh Malkhani star “LAC”. It was shot in Kargil and is based on the Sino-Indian conflict in the Galvan Valley.
