Official statement from Rajan Shahi (producer of hit shows Anupamaa, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, husband Ki Awaaz Pratigya-2).
“Rupali Ganguly, the leading lady on the Anupamaa show, told me today that she had tested positive for Covid-19. She is asymptomatic and by the grace of God she is fine. Rupali is taking all necessary precautions and is currently in quarantine at home. I wish Rupali a speedy recovery. We at DKP (Directors Kut Productions) are committed to the safety of our cast and crew. I made sure all guidelines were followed on set. The BMC is informed and the sets are gassed and sterilized according to the protocol.
Ashish Mehrotra, who plays in Anupamaa Paritosh, was also diagnosed with Covid-19 a few days ago. Although he has not shot in a long time, as soon as symptoms were detected, he received medical attention and also placed himself in quarantine. He is already on the way to recovery and in a few days if he tests negative he will be shooting again.
I am in constant contact 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 prescribed measures are observed. “
