The shoot of the popular television show ‘Naagin 5’ has been stalled after actor Sharad Malhotra tested positive for COVID-19. His co-stars Surbhi Chandna, Mohit Sehgal and Suchit Vikram Singh have undergone the coronavirus test. Sehgal and Chandna subsequently shared that they have tested negative.

Sharing a health update, Sehgal wrote on Instagram about himself and his wife, actress Sanaya Irani: “Me and @sanayairani both have been tested negative bit still to be sure of it. We will be performing the tests again by Tuesday or Wednesday. They say usually after 5 days of getting in contact with the covid positive person the virus starts to spread in ur body if it has to.. Will update soon.”
