Freddy told a leading daily, "My dad had symptoms of seasonal flu like fever and body ache. Hence, we took it lightly. On the third or fourth day, I thought that we should get him tested considering the current scenario. The reports that came a couple of days back showed positive results... The BMC suggested that we should keep him in a place with many rooms and washrooms. So, we kept him at home because we thought that the hospitals may be used by someone who really needs it.” 

The BMC has put up a notice outside the Daruwala bungalow and also sanitized the premise before sealing it. The actor told the website that home isolation is not a problem because there are many rooms in the bungalow. However, he is concerned about his 15-month-old son Evaan.
