Hindi tv actor Erica Fernandes recently revealed that she has isolated herself at her home in Mumbai. Erica said that she chose to remain at home after four people from the set tested positive for Coronavirus. Her co-star Parth Samthaan also tested positive for Coronavirus and has remained off the show ever since. Meanwhile, the self-isolation has not kept Erica from shooting for Kasautii Zindagii Kay. She coordinates with her director and cinematographer through video calls.
In a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror Erica said, "I tested negative, but the testing was done at an early stage. So, I wanted to wait for a few more days, get another test done after 10 days and then get back to the set. But since we were already on air, we had to continue work and this is the best way forward."
At her home, Erica must remain in charge of direction, camera, sound, light, hair and make-up. Erica revealed that she has experience with all of these things as she once ran an online channel of her own. However, there is still one major challenge that has presented itself to Erica. She said, “My only challenge has been not having my co-star in front and having to imagine how the other person will react."
"My director, DoP and someone from the creative team are always on call. The screen acts as their monitor and they give me cues over the call. All discussions happen on the phone as well. We do retakes only if the mood is not right or I fumble my lines. Otherwise, we okay the take quickly and we have done a pretty good job so far,” she added.
