Nikita Dutta is gearing up for her next The Big Bull that stars Abhishek Bachchan in the lead role. The actress has been part of movies like Kabir Singh, Lekar Hum Deewana Dil, Gold and many more. Recently, the Ek Duje Ke Vaste actress revealed that she has unfortunately tested positive for Covid-19 and she has been in home quarantine. Nikita was in a difficult situation as her mother fell ill as well and was rushed to the ICU at the same time when the actress tested positive.

According to a report by ETimes, Nikita said, “It’s difficult to maintain social distance while shooting certain scenes, and actors cannot wear a mask when the shot is on. Our safety rests on the shoulders of the crew. Safety precautions like using sanitisers, masks and temperature checks are in place, but people are still contracting the virus.”

Nikita revealed, “We cannot move the shoot to another city either as our set has been constructed in Mira Road and change in venue for a third schedule is logistically impossible.”

She further added that things got more difficult for her as her mother was ill as well, “My mother had to be rushed to the ICU due to some complications. Luckily, it wasn’t because of COVID. I was about to fly her down to Delhi to see her, but I couldn’t as I tested positive for COVID-19. Let’s hope the vaccine reaches everyone soon.”
