‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ is one of the most popular show on Indian television. Due to the second wave of the pandemic which is hitting the nation, the shooting schedule of the show has come to a sudden halt. Recently, Ghanshyam Nayak who plays the role of Natu Kaka in the show, spoke about these difficult times which have a toll on him.
In an interview, the actor stated that it’s a been a month that he hasn’t been shooting and is waiting for his track to resume soon, “It has been over a month since I am at home. There is no clarity as to when my track will start as the shooting has halted for now. The makers haven’t taken any decision to shift base, too. I had shot for an episode in March and after that I am at home. I am sure the makers will start my track soon and show how Natukaka returns to Mumbai from the village.”
He shared on how as a senior actor is coping in these trying times, “It is very tough. I have been at home and my family also insists that I don’t step out at all. But, I am dying to work and get back on the sets. How long will I live like this in isolation and away from my work? It is tough for senior actors because of the virus. I do understand the safety protocols for senior actors, but my mind and body needs to get up and work.”
When asked about the location of the shooting, he said, “That depends on the makers. As of now, I am not aware if the set will relocate or not. I am hoping that I will start shooting for Taark at Film City soon.”
