Akshay Kumar, Yami Gautam and Pankaj Tripathi-starrer Oh My God 2 is one of the films many are looking forward to. According to a report in Mid-Day, seven members from the team of the movie, which was being shot in Suburban Mumbai, have tested positive for the novel coronavirus. As soon as the development came to light, producer Ashwin Varde stalled the shoot of the movie for two weeks.
A source associated with the film informed Mid-Day, a unit member had tested positive mid-last week. In adherence to the safety norms, the member went into home quarantine, with the rest of the unit undergoing tests.
It added, "Everyone tested negative, after which the shooting resumed. In two days' time, however, three people started showing symptoms. The shoot was promptly put on hold, and a fresh round of tests was organised. At the time, six people were found to have contracted the virus. Both Pankaj and Yami tested negative, as did the director, Amit Rai. But it was only wise to control the outbreak at this stage, and the makers did not waste any time in calling off the shoot." The work will now reportedly resume by October-end. ALSO READ:Kaun Banega Crorepati 13 Shaandaar Shukravaar: Pankaj Tripathi Reveals He Is A Professional Cook On Amitabh Bachchan's Show
