The resumption of shoots has indeed led to an array of debates too where some people continue to stress on how they don't agree with resuming work right now where the scare of contracting the disease is probably at its max and cases are only rising four times with every passing day. On the other hand, the practical side dictates how resuming work is indeed the only way that people can earn money to feed their households, especially when it comes to the technicians and crew of a shoot. Nevertheless, a major chunk of shows has resumed work but there have also been multiple news about how several actors are not continuing to be a part of the show anymore owing to COVID-19 scare.
After Aladdin Naam Toh Suna Hoga and Ishq Subhan Allah, here's another show that will be witnessing a replacement is Kahat Hanuman Jai Shri Ram. The show will witness Akangsha Rawat, who plays Parvati getting replaced by Vidisha Srivastava.
In an interview with Bombay Times, Rawat said, “The producers wanted to begin the shoot immediately, but my dad was worried about me resuming work and risking my health during the COVID-19 crisis. He insisted on leaving our home in Uttarakhand and staying with me in Mumbai, just to ensure that I am safe. However, I couldn’t have put his life at risk, as he is very old. We have only each other and so, I decided to take a two-month break from work till the situation returns to normalcy. I am glad that the production house understood my predicament.”
Srivastava, who has been a part of shows like Yeh Hai Mohabbatein and Meri Gudiya, on her part said, “It is challenging to enter a show as someone’s replacement, but in this case, since ‘Kahat Hanuman’ isn’t that old, I hope that it won’t take me long to establish myself. Besides, the show won’t revolve around child Hanuman (Ekagra Dwivedi), as he is below 10 years and is not allowed to shoot. The new storyline will feature Shiva (Ram Yashwardhan) and Parvati as the central characters.”
