Actor Shivanggi Verma, who is currently a part of Choti Sardarni has tested positive for COVID-19. The actor, however has many challenges to face as she is living all by herself in the city. Talking about it with ETimes TV, Verma said, “For almost 10-12 days my body was showing symptoms like fever, headaches, and cough but my tests always came negative. I didn’t want to put anyone at risk so I immediately isolated myself. Earlier this week my reports came positive and I felt slightly relieved but soon the whole trauma took a toll on my emotional health."
As she is living alone, when asked if that was a concern, “Recently I faced one of the worst days, as my oxygen levels dropped and I started panicking. But Ripu (Ripudaman Handa, boyfriend, and MasterChef India, season 3 winner) has been my biggest strength as he calmed me down and has been on constant video calls with me as he’s currently in New Delhi. While I’m strong and things don’t affect me easily, my confidence levels dropped when I was tested positive. Sometimes it’s also psychological as I lost on a few projects during my quarantine period. Along with Ripu my parents and sister have been my constant emotional support.”
She further added, “I don’t know how to cook as I can only make halwa, instant noodles, bake a cake, and muffins which unfortunately aren’t of much help to me now. I regret not learning to cook simple meals as right now I need to eat as nutritious as possible. But again Ripu has been helping me cook healthy meals through video calls. Owing to the loss of smell and taste I can’t say the difference but I’m certainly going to keep working on my culinary skills.”
We wish the actor recovers at the soonest and is rolling again.
