A source associated with the show told us, “There was an interesting track coming up in Molkki, but it will be postponed now. Since both the lead actors, Amar and Priyal, have tested positive, the makers have changed the track. The team doesn’t have a big bank of episodes and currently, the track shows how Purvi (Priyal) has been kidnapped. TV actors are working hard everyday and the entire team is working with utmost precautions. But, recently, many actors have tested positive in the TV and film industry. It is important that people continue to exercise caution and take all precautions.”
