This was but a natural occurrence – the shoot for Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has been halted since actor Kartik Aaryan has tested positive for COVID-19. The news comes two days after the actor walked the ramp for Manish Malhotra at the Lakme Fashion Week alongside Kiara Advani. Advani is also a part of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and so is Tabu who just shot with Aaryan yesterday. “Kartik shot for the film just yesterday. A lab technician is currently on his way to test Anees Bazmee as well,” a source told ETimes while another source said: “Kiara and Tabu too are going for the test or may have already got it done. Tabu was shooting with Kartik yesterday, but Kiara wasn’t. There are many actors in Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which includes Sanjay Mishra, Rajpal Yadav, Milind Gunaji, Rajesh Sharma. Hope everything will be fine soon.”
“Kartik comes from a family of doctors. He was incredibly cautious about his sanitisation and mask. There was a boy constantly behind him, with a sanitiser in hand. Kartik did not remove his mask for even a second other than when he was filming the scene. It is really puzzling as to how he contracted the infection. Besides the test that rendered the positive result was a routine one which had been made compulsory at least twice a week on the Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 set. Kartik had no symptoms whatsoever,” the source further elaborated.
