Hansal Mehta took to Twitter and wrote: “Looks like I have the virus too. Throat, fever and other mild symptoms. Awaiting tests but treatment has started. Go fight this fucking virus. After tweeting, many celebrities and netizens expressed concern and wished her a speedy recovery.
Now, in a conversation with SpotboyE, Hansal Mehta has revealed that he is gradually recovering from the virus. He said, “This is my fifth day. I have my moments of relaxation. Sometimes I feel like I’m doing quite well. So I pace around the room, open the watch window for a while. But then I’m so tired that I fall into a deep sleep. I sleep all day, so I can’t sleep at night. I watch a lot of movies. “
However, members of his family have tested negative for Covid. Her son Pallava, who has Down syndrome, had to be hospitalized. His driver also had to be hospitalized with Pallava. He said, “So Pallava didn’t need to be alone. I would say it was providential. The worst thing about this Covid virus is that when it catches you, you are on your own. The thought of my son Pallava being alone in the hospital scared me.
When Hansal Mehta was asked how he and his family got infected with the coronavirus. He said: “I was with my family in Lonavla when I felt uncomfortable. I told my wife that we should go back to Mumbai and get tested. This is how we learned that my wife, daughter and son were all infected. It’s a horrible time for everyone. Hopefully and pray this will end soon.
As the filmmaker watches a lot of movies during his quarantine period, Mehta said that Steven Soderbergh’s 2011 movie Contagion warned us of a deadly global virus. He said, “We have been warned. Contagion was a film based on rigorous research. It wasn’t just a movie. It was a warning for what was to come. No one took him seriously. They thought it was just another disaster survival drama that Hollywood specializes in.
