The tested times of living in coronavirus pandemic continue and while the old normal certainly doesn't seem to coming back anytime soon, we do come across rather unfortunate news on multiple instances of people getting diagnosed with coronavirus with every passing day.

After multiple public figures shared about how they have tested positive for Covid-19, here's another actor who has been struck with the virus. Actor and former Miss World India Natasha Suri is the latest one to join the unfortunate bandwagon.

In an interview with Bombay Times, Natasha opened up on how she got infected with the virus and her treatment for the same. Natasha revealed that it was after her recent trip to Pune that she started feeling some symptoms like weakness, fever and sore throat. Upon getting tested, it came positive and the actress is currently under home quarantine.

Natasha said, "Around six days ago, I had gone to Pune for some urgent work. After I came back, I fell ill and had a fever, sore throat and weakness. I underwent a test three days ago, which came positive. Currently, I am in home quarantine. I still have fever and weakness. I am on medication and also taking immunity boosters. I live with my grandmother and sister, so I will get them tested, too.” She further expressed her sadness on not being a part of Dangerous' promotions that kick-start from tomorrow. "The promotions were to begin from August 10, and I am very sad that I won’t be able to participate in them," said the actor.

She added, "Nonetheless, I am excited about the project, sharing screen space with some very good actors and working with such a great team."
We hope Miss Suri recovers soon.

The actor will be seen in Dangerous on MX Player costarring Karan Singh Grover and Bipasha Basu.

But then I was asked to get myself tested and the result turned out to be positive. I got admitted into the hospital immediately."

He further said, "I would advise everyone to do that because they monitor you round-the-clock and you can avoid complications. There’s nothing to be afraid of.” He even mentioned that, "You should not panic about COVID-19. It only creates complications if you have some health issues.

New Delhi: Former President of India Dr Pranab Mukherjee on Monday tested positive for coronavirus.

“On a visit to the hospital for a separate procedure, I have tested positive for COVID19 today. I request the people who came in contact with me in the last week, to please self isolate and get tested for COVID-19,” Mukherjee tweeted


Pranab Mukherjee. The former President was put on ventilator support on Monday after undergoing surgery for removal of a clot in his brain. He has also tested positive for Covid.

Lyricist and poet Rahat Indori has passed away. He was 70. “Rahat Indori ji succumbed to cardiorespiratory arrest at 4:40 pm on August 11, 2020. He was Covid positive and was suffering from diabetes among other ailments. He was on ventilator support,” medical authorities at the Indore hospital confirmed to indianexpress.com.


News portal ANI tweeted that the poet suffered from two heart attacks today and had 60 per cent pneumonia. “Urdu poet Rahat Indori (file pic) passes away at the hospital. He suffered two heart attacks today and could not be saved. He was admitted to hospital on Sunday, after testing positive for #COVID19. He had 60% pneumonia,” reads the tweet.

He had taken to Twitter Tuesday morning to share the news of being Covid-19 positive. He had further added he was admitted in the hospital and concluded with a request to not speculate and wait for him to provide update regarding his health.

कोविड के शरुआती लक्षण दिखाई देने पर कल मेरा कोरोना टेस्ट किया गया, जिसकी रिपोर्ट पॉज़िटिव आयी है.ऑरबिंदो हॉस्पिटल में एडमिट हूँ
दुआ कीजिये जल्द से जल्द इस बीमारी को हरा दूँ
एक और इल्तेजा है, मुझे या घर के लोगों को फ़ोन ना करें, मेरी ख़ैरियत ट्विटर और फेसबुक पर आपको मिलती रहेगी.
— Dr. Rahat Indori (@rahatindori) August 11, 2020

Earlier this year, the poet’s words had transformed into a rallying cry as anti-CAA protests erupted across the country. The line, “Kisi ke baap ka Hindustan thodi hai”, taken from ghazal ‘Agar khilaaf hain hone do” gave a voice and purpose to dissent.

“I wrote this ghazal some 30-35 years ago, though I don’t remember the exact year or the context in which it was written. I have recited this ghazal at many mushaiaras and had even forgotten about it, but I don’t know what’s happened in the last three to four years that like a crop rises again, these words have risen again. Now, wherever I go, people request me to recite this but it’s unfortunate that it’s often taken as a sher by a Muslim. Yeh kisi ek mazhab ka sher nahi hai (these lines are not for any particular religion). They are for everyone,” he had said while speaking to The Indian Express last year.

The ordeal of multiple public figures being contracted with coronavirus is indeed the talk of the town and with every passing day, not only do the number of cases seem to multiplying but also the amount of public figures being diagnosed with the virus is also being more frequent than ever.
A long list of names is already available for all of us to know and look at, yet another name has unfortunately been added to that list.

Actor Mayanka Sharma, who is best known for her small but impactful cameo in Star Plus' Kahaan Hum Kahaan Tum has been tested positive for COVID-19. The actor confirmed the news herself where she said that even though she flew Mumbai to her farmhouse in Gujarat as soon as the lockdown was announced; there seems to be no escape from the deadly virus. Sharma confirmed that not only she but her parents are also tested positive for COVID-19.

According to , She continued, , “Also, my brother and hubby are called for COVID rapid test tomorrow. The situation is such, we all are in the surrounding wherein we do not know who is infected or not. Best is to be self-conscious even if you hit with normal cold or fever just take advice from a doctor and go for check-up immediately. Do not take things for granted we are now educated enough to take basic sets at least. Take extra care and eat healthy food to be fit and beat this situation.”

Sharma also won the Mrs. India crown before entering acting.

A lot of times, we think we have the best immunity, nothing can happen to us, we are a fighter, etc. and we think we are taking all precautions at a pro-level. While looking after my parents and sister, I started showing symptoms too and when I got checked for COVID-19 yesterday, I tested positive. I don't want to scare you all since the recovery rate is extremely high. But all I want to tell everyone is that everybody reacts to this virus in a different way. In fact, all 4 of us in the family have visibly different symptoms and effects caused due to the virus. So, don't take it lightly and do everything in your power to safeguard yourself from it.
