Seems like Manoj Bajpayee and Deepak Dobriyal have turned out to be the victims of the same. As per the reports, both the actors are stuck in Uttarakhand where they were shooting for an unknown project.

After the screening, Manoj praised the health team’s work and said, “Doctors are doing great work by saving the lives of people. We highly appreciate the efforts of the doctors and entire team members who came to check on us amid the lockdown.” Meanwhile, COVID-19 has brought the complete film industry to a standstill, with shootings being called off and theatres being closed since almost a month now.
