Soon after megastar Amitabh Bachchan‘s announcement about him and Abhishek being COVID-19 positive, a list of people from the entertainment started sharing out their COVID-19 positive reports. One amongst those is the creative head of Balaji Telefilms, Tanusri Dasgupta who confirmed that she has been tested positive for the virus last week. Not only this, but she also revealed that she was earlier on home quarantine but since her oxygen levels went down, she was admitted to the Seven Hills Hospital in Mumbai on July 4. It was her mother, she says, who was first diagnosed with coronavirus and had mild symptoms.
Talking to India Forums in an interview, Tanusri said, “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.”
She was positive about coming back soon as she was quoted saying, “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.”
On Sunday, Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 actor Parth Samthaan shared on Instagram that he is COVID-19 positive. He wrote alongside a picture of himself, “Hi everyone , I have been tested Postive for covid 19 .although I have mild symptoms..

The Bmc has regularly been in touch and with the doctors guidance I am in self quarantine and I am grateful to them for all their support . Please be safe and take care.”
