When Parth had tested positive for COVID-19, the shoot of Kasauti Zindagii Kay 2 was halted and the cast and crew were also asked to get tested.
Karan's publicist had said in a statement to Pinkvilla, "Karan has not been shooting since the last few days but because he is a responsible citizen and feels safety comes first he is getting a swab test done on personal accord for the safety of all around him.
"This is a precautionary measure he is taking to provide peace to all who are concerned for his safety and his immediate family members towards whom he is responsible. Please be rest assured he is fine and there is nothing to worry about. Please do not panic this too shall pass," the statement added.
Karan joined the cast of the series recently, to play the role of Mr. Bajaj, which was earlier being played by Karan Singh Grover. Pooja Banerjee plays Nivedita Basu, Aamna Sharif plays the role of Komolika, and Shubhaavi playes the role of Parth's onscreen mother.
