On June 14, Deepika Padukone visited a hospital in Hyderabad after feeling uneasy. She reportedly had erratic heartbeats. After seeking treatment, she returned to the sets of Project K. The actress' health became a cause of concern on the film's sets and her co-star Prabhas reportedly requested the team to postpone the shoot until she recovers. Now, in an interview, Project K's producer Aswini Dutt gave an update on Deepika's health.
The producer told a leading daily that Deepika had tested positive for COVID-19 once again before her Cannes 2022 visit. After wrapping her duties as a jury member, the actress flew down to Hyderabad for Project K. Due to fluctuation in her blood pressure, she was taken to a hospital. "Earlier she was down with Covid, but after recovering she left for Europe. And straightaway from Europe, she landed on our film sets. After mild fluctuations in her BP, she visited the hospital for an hour for a routine check up just to make sure that everything was normal," the producer clarified.
During her visit to her hometown-Bengaluru in May 2021, Deepika tested positive along with her father Prakash Padukone, mother Ujjala Padukone and younger sister Anisha Padukone. In January this year, the actress opened up about her COVID-19 recovery journey. She told an entertainment portal, "Lockdown two was also very different because everyone in my family, including me, had COVID at the same time. Life after COVID changed for me because physically, I was unrecognizable completely... I think (due to) the medication I was given, the steroids that I was put on. So COVID in itself was weird, your body feels different, your mind feels different."
Workwise, Deepika was last seen in Gehraiyaan.
