Actor Saumya Tandon might just be away for some more time from the sets of her show Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain! As per a report published in News18, the makers are searching for a replacement for a while and are thinking of getting Bigg Boss 13 fame Shefali Jariwala on board. While there’s no confirmation on the same, the report suggested that Saumya is scared to resume shooting after her hairdresser tested positive for the coronavirus a few days back. The actor recently gave birth to a child and that’s another reason why she reportedly doesn’t want to take any risk.
