All of India is currently on total lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Undoubtedly, COVID-19 lockdown is one of the most difficult periods that Indian has gone through in recent years.
Celebrities have been spreading awareness about Coronavirus and staying at home. Actors have self-quarantined themselves to keep the virus at bay. Mandar Chandwadkar, who plays the role of Bhide in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is also home quarantined with his family.
He says, “Like, in the show, I play a disciplined teacher so I am following the lockdown rules with discipline. This is the only way by which we can fight the deadly virus. We can do a lot of things during quarantine which we miss when we shoot all day. I am spending time with my family. We are playing cards, also board game ludo. The game which I used to play in my childhood, I am teaching them to my children.”
Talking about missing set and shoot, he adds, “The set of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is like a second home for us and I am already a little nostalgic within a week of being away from the set. This opportunity to reconnect cheers me up and I am looking forward to reuniting even if from our own homes. I just pray that the lockdown phase ends and we get to go back to work or as I see it, to having fun at work soon.”
