Meanwhile, popular Indian television actor Shaheer Sheikh, who plays the romantic lead on Star Plus’ successful show Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke, has given his take on the complete shutdown of the television industry amidst the coronavirus outbreak.

“I am at home for now as we will not be shooting for the next 10-15 days. I think this is a very good step taken by our industry, and I know there are many daily wage earners and that they will suffer, but everyone is going to suffer. At the same time, health is more important and so we need to take care of it for some time to avoid it, so that things can go back to normal as soon as possible,” said the actor.
