India's Best Dancer which aired in February this year is one of the hit dance-based reality shows. The show is being judged by Malaika Arora, Geeta Kapoor, and Terence Lewis. Due to lockdown, the show came to a halt but it got resumed once relaxation for the shooting was put into effect. However, on one side, India’s Best Dancer is topping in TRP charts, on the other side, disaster struck after it was reported that some crew members of the show tested positive for COVID-19. According to a report in ABP News, 7 to 8 people including choreographers and staff members on the sets of the dance reality show have tested positive for the deadly Coronavirus. Now, we have to see what protocol they will follow or how the production team will deal with this.
Apart from this show, the same portal even reported that two members of Amitabh Bachchan's quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati 12 tested COVID-19 positive even though the shoot was done with all precautions. Big B even shared a picture on his Instagram account showing his fans and followers how he has been shooting with crew members wearing blue PPE kits on the sets while recording the show. A part of his blog even read, "Its a sea of limited BLUE on set.. quiet.. conscious.. each delegated work routine.. precautions, systems, distanced masks, sanitised and the apprehensions of not just what shall happen to the show."
Not just the crew members, even stars are tested positive with this novel virus. Stars like Choti Sarrdaarni actor Krishna Soni, Sarabhai VS Sarabhai star Rosesh aka Rajesh Kumar and a TV dating reality show winner Shrey Mittal tested positive for COVID-19.
