Exclusive – Dance Deewane 3 hit by COVID; 18 crew members test positive
It was absolute chaos on the set of ‘Dance Deewane 3’ over the weekend in Mumbai’s Filmistan Studio (Goregaon). About 18 crew members tested positive for Covid-19. ETimes TV exclusively has it that the producer (Arvind Rao) of the show immediately arranged for a new set of people who could replace the members hit by coronavirus.
A source says, “The number 18 is very high. Immense fear must have gripped everyone associated with the show ‘Dance Deewane 3’, including Madhuri Dixit, Tushar Kalia and Dharmesh Yelande who judge the show. Ditto for Raghav Juyal, who hosts it. ”
When contacted, FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees) General Secretary Ashok Dubey confirmed and said, “Whatever has happened is very unfortunate. We pray that each person who has been infected gets fine. This show always does a pre-test with the cast and crew and hence they had some time to rush in a new crew. Their next shoot is on April 5 and a pre-test will again be done. Only those who are COVID negative are allowed and hereafter too the same procedure will be adopted.”
