It was yesterday, we learnt that Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor Mandar Chandwadkar has been tested positive for COVID-19. Now, on social media, the actor has shared the latest health update with his fans.

Captioning the video, Mandar Chandwadkar wrote, “Guys do take care of yourself plz plz wear mask n maintain social distance.. i am asymptomatic and shall resume work very soon.. till then take care n be safe.”
Here’s what the Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor has to say:
Speaking of the same, Mandar Chandwadkar had a talk with Times Of India. He said, “My symptoms of cold had actually gone away but suddenly yesterday I could not smell camphor in puja. I felt I had lost the sense of smell and got myself tested. Upon getting the test, I immediately informed the ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ unit that I shall stay away from the shoot until I am perfectly alright again.”
After testing positive for COVID-19, Mandar began observing self-quarantine at his home. Since the show is revolving around Bhide so the actor’s positive reports have left the makers worried. The actor was shooting with co-stars Sonalika Joshi and Palak Sindhwani and has asked them to get tested as well.
