Actor Sudhanshu Pandey who is playing Vanraj in television's number one show Anupamaa had to spend his entire day clarifying that he has not contracted the coronavirus. It all started when the actor posted a joke around Karva Chauth on his social media that 'Pata nahi kaun si waali ne vrat tod diya, bukhaar sa mehsoos ho raha hai (sic)'. In the show currently he is shown to be fighting for the affections of his onscreen wife Anupamaa, played by Rupali Ganguly, and Kavya (Madalsa Sharma) with whom he is shown to be having his extra marital affair.
The actor's joke was not understood by many of the actor's fans who started calling and messaging him inquiring about if he had any other symptoms related to Coronavirus, since he gad used the term 'feverish'.

Talking to TOI, Sudhanshu revealed how his joke created a ruckus, "Some times you don't know how your joke is taken by people around you. This is my first literal experience of people taking a joke very seriously. Most people didn't realize that my post was a joke on Karva Chauth. I just posted this on my instagram account that I am feeling feverish, I don't know which one in my life has broken her fast. I had also put up this status on Whatsapp. I started getting so many messages and calls from people asking about my well-being."

He also added, "My whole Karva Chauth went in explaining to people that 'guys this a joke on Karva Chauth'. People should read all statuses carefully, I think. It is a lesson for them. I think we should go a little slow in life."
