Watch: Anupam Kher's mother, brother, sister-in-law and niece found COVID positive; actor tests negative


Bollywood actors Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan tested positive for COVID-19 on Saturday. As they are currently admitted to the Nanavati Hospital for treatment, news of Anupam Kher's mother Dulari Kher, brother Raju Kher and his family including wife Reema and daughter Vrinda are found 'mildly' positive for the novel Coronavirus that has caused havoc across the world. The actor, whose report is negative, shared a video addressing the same. He told that his nephew Pranit Kher went for the test and he was found negative too. 

Anupam, in the video statement, informed that his mother Dulari has been admitted to Kokilaben Ambani Hospital while Raju and his family have self-quarantined themselves. He said that the BMC will be sanitizing their house. He further requested people to get their parents tested if they show the slightest of symptoms. He urged everyone to take the situation seriously as no amount of safety measures are enough to keep the invisible enemy at bay. 


I would like to inform friends, well-wishers and everyone else that I had taken my mother for a check-up yesterday, as she had been experiencing loss of appetite. On doctor’s recommendation, we took her for CT Scan to rule out any medical issue. Upon testing, she was found mildly Covid +. Owing to her age, we have admitted her into Kokilaben Hospital. She is doing fine. Three other members ( my brother, his wife and my niece) have also tested mildly positive.I got myself tested as well and I have tested negative. The family has self-quarantined themselves and we have informed the BMC. I would like to reach out to everyone with aged parents - please get your parents tested even if they show the slightest of symptoms. Despite the extreme amount of carefulness displayed by my brother and his family over the last few months, they still tested positive. So I urge everyone to take this seriously and understand that no amount of safety measures are enough. Friends, don’t let your guards down. Let’s be vigilant, let’s be aware and let’s fight the bad times together. #stayhome #staysafe #DulariWillStillRock @rajukherofficial @kherreema @vrindakher
