Show’s Producer Arvind Rao who is currently recovering from COVID-19 confirmed the news to ETimes and said that “Dharmesh tested negative last week when he went to Goa to renovate his home. He was supposed to join us for the shoot on April 5. But, before we start shooting, everyone has to undergo a COVID-19 test. Dharmesh underwent another test in Goa and he had developed symptoms, too. He tested positive, so we decided to bring in Shakti Mohan and Punit J Pathak for the upcoming episodes. They shot the show with Madhuri Dixit and Tushar Kalia.”
Madhuri Dixit recently returned from the Maldives after spending quality time with her family. She resumed shooting from April 5 after being tested negative for the COVID-19. Dance Deewane has witnessed a lot of celebrity guests gracing the show.
