TV actor Sooraj Thapad, who shot for Shaurya Aur Anokhi Ki Kahani in Goa, tested positive for Covid-19 after his return to Mumbai. The actor, who reportedly had a high fever, had to be hospitalized.
A close friend of Sooraj informed The Times of India that the actor is stable and “not in intensive care,” as previously reported.
“When his fever skyrocketed, his family thought it best to let him in. Getting a bed wasn’t easy, but after running around a bit, they finally found a bed in a hospital in Goregaon. His condition is currently stable. Contrary to reports, he’s not in the intensive care unit, ”the friend told TOI.
Sooraj Thapad plays Tej Sabharwal in Shaurya Aur Anokhi Ki Kahani, one of the shows filmed in Goa.
Earlier this week, the Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG) revoked all film and TV series permits in the state following the raging Covid-19 pandemic.
ESG Vice Chairman Subhash Phal Desai told PTI that all approvals granted to filming in the state have been revoked until the state of Covid-19 is under control.
