Though stars are excited to be back to work after a long break, due to the outbreak of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, they are constantly under the fear of being exposed to this novel Coronavirus. One of the actresses is Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain actress Shubhangi Atre. Playing the role of Angoori bhabhi on the show, she is constantly worried as she has to shoot in different areas of the sets which include her sitting on a sofa, lying down on bed and also accessing the kitchen.
As stated in Hindustan Times, she is quoted saying, “There are scenes where I’m supposed to lie down on the bed or sit on the sofa or work in the kitchen, everything requires me to touch something that would have been touched by several other people. Even though they would have sanitised properly, par darr toh lagta hai.” Also when it comes to her makeup, the actress is constantly in need to touch up as the mask messes her makeup and heat makes her face oily.
She adds, “Also, in the heat, my makeup starts dripping and face becomes oily, so I’ve to do the touch up myself. And every time I need to wash or sanitise my hand. Wearing mask also messes the makeup, especially the lipstick, so I’ve to do the touch up repeatedly, that’s really a concern.” While she mentions being comfortable doing her own makeup, she is conscious as someone needs to hold the mirror and pouch for her.
“I’ve always don that. The only difference is that now, someone needs to hold the mirror and the pouch that has my makeup kit, so that I can do the touch up in between. But even then, having someone come close while holding the mirror, bothers me,” she adds.
Also as social distancing is one of the safety measures, the cast is managing well by maintaining safe distance while shooting.
“Earlier we would have may shots where I’d hug or lightly push my onscreen husband (played by Rohitash Gaud), but now we’re avoiding those. Once we enter the set, we finish everything and then only leave. Also, we’re shooting eight to ten scenes a day with three camera set-up, so that we can finish quickly,” says Shubhangi.

She also feels it is difficult to recognise people as all of them are wearing masks, she says, “It’s difficult to recognise people under masks and face shields and understand directions.”
After getting back in the role of Angoori bhabhi after a gap of 100 days she has become a bit conscious, she said, “I’ve been playing this character for long now, but now that we shot after a gap of 100 days, I’ve been asking my director if I’m portraying my part well. I’ve become so conscious.” ALSO READ: Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai Actress Shubhangi Atre Boycotts TikTok: 'Request Other TV Actors Also To Do The Same'- EXCLUSIVE
