Confirming the news, Tanmay, who plays the role of Baagha in the popular comedy show, told The Times of India, “Yes, the news is true. Our building has been sealed due to the COVID-19 cases. The entire building has been quarantined for 14 days since Tuesday”.
The actor went on to add, “It is a tough time for all of us and everyone is scared about their families. We are not allowed to step out and I absolutely understand that it is the most important thing at the moment. I am all praise for the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). The BMC officials have been extremely helpful, they have sanitised the entire building”.
