Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actress Priya Ahuja has been diagnosed with COVID-19. The television personality became one of the many Hindi show actors to have contracted the virus.
Priya plays the role of Rita Reporter in the popular SAB TV show. This news comes after she delivered her first child Ardaas in November last year. Priya is married to the show's director Malav Rajda.
She wrote about her condition on social media. Her situation has however not stopped the shoot for the show as she was not shooting recently due to her maternity break.
The actress said in an Instagram post that it was her duty to inform everyone that she has tested positive.
She asked people who came in contact with her in the last couple of days to get tested. She wrote that she was not shooting currently and she was "at home all this while" and "still got this virus." Priya urged everyone to keep themselves safe and wear their masks. The actress ended the note by urging all to pray for her health, along with her newborn child.
