Even after taking multiple precautions, COVID-19 has affected a lot of people including TV celebrities. From Himansh Kohli to Himani Shivpuri, several television celebrities have tested positive for coronavirus. The latest to be diagnosed are Ishq Mein Marjawan actors Chandni Sharma, Rrahul Sudhir and Jay Zaveri.

According to a report in The Times of India, Rrahul Sudhir, who plays Vansh in the serial tested positive for COVID-19 on September 23. As per protocol, the entire cast and crew were tested. The results of Rrahul's co-stars Chandni Sharma and Jay Zaveri have come out positive. Director Noel Smith has been infected too. Speaking to the publication, a source close to the show said, "Since we have a sufficient bank of episodes, we could easily take a six-day break. The entire set has been fumigated and sanitised. We will resume shooting this week."

"We had the cast and crew that was present on the set with him tested immediately. In the meantime, the creative team is working out the story to accommodate his absence. Fortunately, we have a few episodes in the bank, so the story won't be compromised," the source continued.

The stars joins the long list of celebs infected by COVID-19.
