On 11 September, the Masti actor had said  that he had contracted the virus after developing a mild fever and dry cough. The symptoms appeared after he completed the shoot of his web series, Poison 2, following which he intended to fly to London and be with his family.

"People are very scared and rightfully so. It is something invisible. I myself don’t know how I got it. At least if we knew what to take prevention from, things would have been easier," Shivdasani had told Hindustan Times.

Poison 2 is the second instalment of the Zee 5 show and it also stars Sakshi Pradhan, Raai Laxmi, Pooja Chopra and Rahul Dev in pivotal roles, according to Bollywood Life.
