Mandar Chandwadkar, the popular actor, who plays the role of Bhide in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, has tested positive for COVID-19.
Talking to a popular daily, Mandar said: “My symptoms of cold had actually gone away but suddenly yesterday I could not smell camphor in puja. I felt I had lost the sense of smell and got myself tested. Upon getting the test, I immediately informed the ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ unit that I shall stay away from the shoot until I am perfectly alright again. Yes, I am COVID positive but I am taking every possible care. As for my isolation, I am doing it at my home only.”
“I have an oximeter at home. I am checking my oxygen levels every 3 hours and of course my temperature. But overall, I am fine. I am reading books, watching a lot of TV and taking vitamin pills, you can call it a short holiday for me,” Mandar signed off.
Sunayana and Hasmukhi commented “Get well soon”
We wish him speedy recovery!
