Arjun Kapoor is amongst the Bollywood celebrities who were tested positive for coronavirus. The actor has informed his fans about the diagnosis on September 6, 2020 & on October 7, 2020, almost a month later and revealed that he is finally coronavirus free.
Currently, he has headed to Himachal Pradesh where he has kickstarted the shoot of his upcoming film Bhoot Police co-starring Saif Ali Khan, Yami Gautam and Jacqueline Fernandez. Now, during an interaction with a new source, Kapoor spoke about his experience with battling COVID-19.
The actor told
“I was diagnosed positive on a Sunday. I remember waking up the next day with a slight fever, body ache, and was feeling fatigued while using the washroom. By Wednesday, it felt like a regular viral and the fever had subsided, but I felt sluggish and tired through the rest of the week. Emotionally, the recuperation is unique because nobody knows how to go about it.”
Arjun further shared
“Even today, I am careful because the doctors have advised me to take it one day at a time. I don’t know how badly my lungs were affected, or how much of my stamina is affected, except that every once in awhile, I feel like someone who has recovered from a virus because the fatigue factor is real. I am young, but the senior family members might not be able to cope with this as easily we can.”
While talking to the news source Hindustan Times, Arjun said:
I was confused, felt a varied degree of emotion. I was upset as I had to realign my life and I was looking forward to being on set. I had just shot for a few days and did the test to restart the second schedule so I felt disappointed that because of me the shoot will get cancelled. I then realised that I’ve to now be careful with my family, so there was a bit of concern, anger, irritation, but I also knew I’ve to deal with it practically. This one Sunday (September 6) just blew out of proportion for me. It took me six-eight hours to accept the situation before I could speak with the doctor. I calmed down when the doctor told me I was mostly asymptomatic. I felt mild symptoms coming in over the course so I guess it panned out alright.
