It has now been over a month where an array of shows have moved their base to different cities for shooting in an ode to keep the show going on for the viewers and be a source of income for the people associated to them.
While that continues, one other show that did not shift base was Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai! The long-running sitcom did not move shoot as they had a bank of episodes. But now the team is travelling Gujarat and Shubhangi Atre aka Angoori Bhabhi will be joining in too.
Now, she has battled the virus and recovered from it and will be going for the shoot now. About it, Atre talked about it with ETimes TV as she said, “It has been around two months since we stopped shooting for the show. We had a healthy bank of episodes, which lasted for so long. The credit for it goes to our producer, Binaifer Kohli. The unit works in such a way that we work more productively and never struggle with the bank of episodes. Now, we are finally resuming the shoot. We are going to Surat on May 22.”"
Having contracted the virus only recently and now travelling, she said, “Yes, I have just recovered from Covid and still feel a little weak. When I told my parents that I will be going to Gujarat, they panicked. They asked me to cancel my travel plans. But my family knows that I want to get back to work. As an entertainer, my primary job is to keep my audience engaged and happy, especially during such challenging times. I have assured them that I will take care of myself.”
She added, “My husband (Piyush Poorey) has told me to take utmost care and follow all precautions. He is busy packing a first aid kit for me filled with medicines and supplements. My 15-year-old daughter (Ashi), who is a voracious reader, has been giving me all COVID-19-related information and told me to be responsible. I will make sure I maintain social distancing at all times, will wear a mask throughout, and sanitise regularly.”
