Sharing her health update, the actress told an entertainment portal that she has been asked to remain in quarantine for 10 days and take another test post that. Nikita added that it is difficult for them to maintain social distance while doing any particular scene, and since they have to shoot without masks, the safety of the actors rest on the shoulders of the crew. The actress also revealed that she was about to fly to meet her mother, who was rushed to the ICU due to some health complications, but due to COVID-19 she has to stay at home.
Meanwhile, the actress is gearing up for the release of The Big Bull on Disney + Hoststar. The film also stars Ileana D'Cruz, Soham Shah, Ram Kapoor, Supriya Pathak and Saurabh Shukla. It is based on the life and times of stockbroker Harshad Mehta. Harshad orchestrated the Rs 5000-crore 1992 securities scandal, which led to the exposure of many loopholes in the functioning of the stock market and banks. It is directed by Kookie Gulati and produced by Ajay Devgn and Anand Pandit. We pray Nikita Dutta recovers soon and resumes her pending projects.
