Saumya Tandon, who stars as one of the Bhabhijis in the show Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain, opens up about her situation in this lockdown. Since the shooting of several shows and movies is put to a halt, the makers have delayed or cut the payments of its actors. Opening up to a leading daily, Saumya told them that her payment has been delayed. "Our payments are also delayed. My payments are severely delayed. So, the payments are yet to be completely cleared. I don't distrust them and I am sure they should and they would clear but yes, they are delayed."
The actress further revealed that she's scared to go back to shooting. "In those lists of rules, I still can't find a rule which asks that everyone should be mandatorily checked for COVID. I am worried about that because the networks and the producers won't be on the ground working, we are the ones who are actually on the first line of fire. COVID 19 is an asymptomatic disease, anybody can carry the virus in their body and show symptoms later. So testing them for the same should be done. Secondly, we need someone to monitor if the rules are being followed or not."
Adding further, "Honestly, I am scared because we don't have a drug out there. Because for the last three months, we were all careful to not even touch anyone or talk to anyone and suddenly we will be put in a place where at least 30-35 people will be shooting. So, my first reaction was that I am scared and apprehensive. I hope that the producers and networks are making the right arrangements to secure the lives of everyone because nothing is more important than that."
