Sooraj had joined the cast of Shaurya last year. Talking about resuming shooting post lockdown, the actor had told Times of India, “That’s always a worry, but one can’t sit at home for so long. We have to step out and work, as this is all that we know and are passionate about. We were out of work during lockdown. When the work resumed, we were in a predicament whether to take up work or no. However, I gained confidence while shooting for ‘Akbar Ka Bal… Birbal’ and do my best to keep myself safe from the virus while working. We still fear kyunki kuchh bhi ho sakta hai, but all of us take every possible measure to keep the virus at bay.”
Sooraj is known for his role in most popular shows like Sasural Genda Phool, Akbar Ka Bal… Birbal, Chandragupt Maurya, Ekk Nayi Pehchaan, Hum Sath Aath Hain among others. He has also done films like Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar and Razia Sultan to name a few.
We wish him a speedy recovery.
