After testing positive, Modi asked every person he came in contact with, to get themselves tested. He urged everyone to follow the protocol, while also confirming that he has isolated himself, most probably in his house.
He tweeted, “After some symptoms of COVID19, I got myself tested & Report came positive.I have isolated myself. I request who has come in my contact to be careful and follow the protocol.”
The producer then added in Hindi, “आप मेरी चिंता ना करें,आप के प्यार प्रार्थनाआशीर्वाद से मैं जल्दी ठीक हो जाऊँगा.आप मस्त स्वस्थ रहें (Please don’t worry about me. I will be cured soon due to your love and blessings. You stay happy and healthy).”
Here’s his tweet:

After its long run, for over a decade, ‘Taarak mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ had come to a halt due to COVID-19. The cast and crew had to wait for months before they got back on the sets, adjusting to the new normal.
The show went on floors again in July, after the government started the Unlock phases. They started shooting with santisation and safety protocols in place.
A new cast came into being after ‘Anjali bhabhi’ played by Neha Mehta was replaced by Sunanya Fozdar. The character of ‘Sodhi’ was also replaced from Gurucharan Singh Sodhi to Balwinder Singh Suri.
