After Meher Vij tests positive, maker of Swara Bhasker-led Jahaan Chaar Yaar calls off Goa stint

Work on Swara Bhasker’s Jahaan Chaar Yaar, also starring Meher Vij, Shikha Talsania and Pooja Chopra, was progressing swiftly until the unit hit the Goa leg late last week. Two days into the filming of the all-women project in the beach state, director Kamal Pandey had to halt the shoot as Vij came down with the infection. A production hand recounts, “As per protocol, the entire team was tested before they left from Mumbai last Friday. The shoot began that very day.”

Producer Vinod Bachchan confirms the development, adding that the unit promptly took action. “Meher showed COVID-19 symptoms on day two of the shoot. The filming was immediately suspended, and the entire team was made to quarantine in their respective rooms. Fortunately, everyone, except Meher, tested negative,” he states.

Considering the story is centred on four friends who feel trapped in their monotonous lives until a chance vacation changes their lives, most sequences lined up required the presence of the four actors. While the makers were initially contemplating canning the solo portions, Bachchan and Pandey had a change of heart. The producer says, “Looking at the rising cases across the country, we have decided to postpone the shoot.” The cast and crew, barring Vij, returned to Mumbai on Wednesday.
