Popular television actor Parth Samthaan tested positive for the novel COVID-19. The actor who is currently seen as Anurag Basu in Ekta Kapoor's Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 informed about the same to his fans with a post on Instagram on Sunday (July 12). Now, as the crew members of the show are awaiting their precautionary test results, news of Balaji Telefilms' Executive Vice President Tanusri Dasgupta testing positive has come in. Tanusri, who is currently admitted to the Seven Hills Hospital, told in a statement that her mother was diagnosed first and she wasn't hospitalised due to mild symptoms. She said that the initial days were scary but now, she is recovering well and will be home soon.
"I was brought to the hospital on Saturday night when I hit a low on oxygen. The doctor did a blood test and advised me to get admitted so that I can be monitored. Before that I was at home with my mother who had also tested positive. But she did not need to be hospitalised. She was home quarantined and is on her way to recovery. I caught a deeper strain I think and had to be admitted. The staff here has been extremely helpful in nursing me back to health. I still have a cough due to bronchitis and am being treated for the same. Yes, it was scary for a few days, but if you are in good hands there is no fear. We all are recovering and I will be back home soon," Tanusri said.
I am glad you were born too !!! How else would any of this makes sense. You are that impossible child that I can’t return to the shelter ...some of these pictures are horrendous but they are also a lifetime of memories that we created together!!! Just browsing for this post made me realise how far back we go and how many times you have had my back. I guess we will continue this madness for the rest of our lives...and at some point we will figure it out. Let’s not have the perfect relationship because flawed is so much more real... happy birthday to this mad crazy creature who keeps us all going !!! #bestiebirthday#loveandlaughter#hearttoheart
Soon after Parth's result arrived, the shoot of Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 was stopped.
