Says the actor, who plays the handsome Dev in the show, "It’s a different experience altogether shooting with all sorts of precautions. But I am happy that I am facing the camera after a long break. To be honest, before reaching the set there were mixed feelings like will it be safe, is it the right decision to start shoot etc. But once I reached the set I saw everything was organised and all necessary precautions were taken and after that, I was relaxed."

The cast is currently shooting for the show's finale epsidoes. "Though we have resumed shoot to conclude the season, I believe that the last shot of the show will be shot with the same intensity as the first scene was shot.
