Speaking with Times of India, Nayak said, “It has been over a month since I am at home. There is no clarity as to when my track will start as the shooting has halted for now. The makers haven’t taken any decision to shift base, too. I had shot for an episode in March and after that I am at home. I am sure the makers will start my track soon and show how Natukaka returns to Mumbai from the village.” Also Read - Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah Fans Celebrate as Daya Ben's Entry is Confirmed

When asked how he is coping up, he said, “t is very tough. I have been at home and my family also insists that I don’t step out at all. But, I am dying to work and get back on the sets. How long will I live like this in isolation and away from my work? It is tough for senior actors because of the virus. I do understand the safety protocols for senior actors, but my mind and body need to get up and work.” Also Read - Viral Video: Makeup Artist's Stunning Transformation Into 'Jethalal' From Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah Will Bowl You Over | Watch
