Rupali Ganguly, who is currently reaping accolades for her hit TV serial Anupamaa, has tested positive for Coronavirus. Taking to social media she informed her fans about her diagnosis. She wrote that she is in quarantine and her family’s test results are awaited. The show’s crew is also undergoing tests for Covid-19.
Rupali shared a picture of herself in which she can be seen wearing a helmet and wrote a funny caption about her plight. She wrote, “MA Corona Devi Tu hai ki nahiiiii ( mild to asymptomatic) Ye kya hua kaise hua kab hua Jab hua tab hua .... chhodo ye na poocho (How and when did this happened? Oh, don't ask about it!)..This is the kind of positive I didn’t want to be."
She further urged everyone to take precautions and informed about her family and Anupamaa’s crew undergoing tests as well and wrote, “Take care and stay safe everyone and keep showering ur love on my family and Anupamaa family. Sorry for letting u and Rudransh down @ashwinkverma and the entire unit down @rajan.shahi.543 despite u taking all the precautions- pata nahi kahan se kaise ho gaya ... Have quarantined myself away from my family and other humans. Family has been tested and awaiting results.... please keep them in ur prayers. Unit is getting tested too as I write this .... please send out a lot of love , healing and prayers for my family and for my Anupamaa family. #coronapositive #positivevibes #blessed #love #quarantine #instadaily #instagood #jaimatadi #jaimahakal.”
Rupali had previously spoken about her fears to a leading daily last year about shooting during the times of coronavirus . She said in the interview, “I am scared to touch my son. The moment I return from the shoot, I take a shower and then immediately wear a mask and go to my room where I am living in isolation. And after I leave for shoot in the morning, my room is properly sanitized. All this new normal is very strange for me. Not a single day in the past seven years of Rudransh’s birth has it happened that he has slept away from me. I am so used to having him by my side. But I can’t do that now. And in fact, whenever I get all emotional and want to physically hug or kiss him, I give a kiss on his feet, even there I am afraid.”
