Rues Rakul Preet Singh, whose plan associate future film was off after Arjun Kapoor tested Covid-19 positive.
Rakul Preet Singh had simply landed in Mumbai on 6th September to resume work on her cross-border love story when she learnt that the eight-day schedule, from September 7 to 14, had been off when her co-star Arjun Kapoor tested positive for Covid-19. “The place was still on the runway when I got the call. Had I known even half hour earlier, I wouldn’t have boarded the flight,” says Rakul.
She instantly called up her Telugu film director, Krish, wondering if they might advance their shoot, originally scheduled for September 15, therefore the 10 days wouldn’t go waste. “Since they also had to get dates from other stars and permissions, we only started this Thursday,” informs Rakul, who flew back to Hyderabad on September 9, admitting her schedule has gone for a toss.
She had come to Mumbai for on a daily basis towards August-end for the same film and everyone was fine then. However throughout a mandatory test done a few days prior to the shoot, Arjun tested positive. “I had tested negative the day before Arjun’s report came. He didn’t come in contact with anyone on the set. I traced back and figured that he might have come in contact with someone infected while I was shooting in Hyderabad,” she says, adding that she’s in grips with the actor and he is doing well.
