Actor Azhar Shaikh, who essays the character of Pinku on the popular TV show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, is in stress these days. Reason? Well, the fear of COVID-19 that’s looming on the world right now. The actor, who is a resident of Mira Road, has a COVID-19 patient in his premises- thus, his building stands sealed as of now.
Talking to us exclusively, Azhar said, "It has been almost a week now that I haven't stepped down my building even to get basic necessities. As a 45-year-old uncle in our building has been tested positive and is currently getting treated in a nearby isolation centre. Also, I reside in a building which is near Wockhardt hospital. So, we are taking extra precautions."
He also added, "I stay with my family and no one is stepping out of the house. Whatever basics we require, we order online and they keep it outside the building main gate and someone goes and collects it. But I am more concerned for my father who is in Mumbai Police and everyday going for work. He leaves at 7 in the morning but there is no specific time of coming back. Whenever he comes back, he sanitises himself and walks inside. He is doing a lot and I am extremely proud of him."
Other than Azhar, his co-stars Sonalika Joshi’s (Madhvi) building in Kandivali and Tanmay Vekaria’s (Bagga) residence were also sealed, a few days back.
