The coronavirus pandemic is leading us all on a merry dance, thanks to its various mutations.. While on one side we’re seeing the hope of the vaccine to beat this infectious virus, on the other side we hear that the UK has witnessed a new variant of COVID-19 that is deadlier and has the potential to spread faster. No wonder several airlines have shut the flights from the UK to make sure that the domino effect of the spread of the virus doesn’t happen all over again.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas who was working in London on her next Hollywood film Text For You with Sam Heughan is now stranded in the UK. The actress was in the city to complete her film but now due to this latest development, the actress will have to stay put in the UK for some time. A source close to a leading daily explained the situation saying, “The producers (Text For You) have halted production at the moment. Their top priority is to ensure the safe return of the cast and crew. Special permissions are being sought to travel back to the US, but the procedure may take longer than usual with the lockdown rules becoming stricter than ever before. It is possible that Priyanka and the rest of the unit will have to stay put in the UK for a while.”
Meanwhile, Neena Gupta and Kalki Koechlin who were going to shoot for Goldfish in London next month, won’t be doing so as the makers have decided to stall the shooting schedule until further notice. Even Sonam Kapoor Ahuja who stays in the UK with her husband Anand Ahuja will have to celebrate her holiday season in Mumbai.
