It was only yesterday that we reported about how actors and loved couple, Aly Goni and Jasmin Bhasin did indeed test positive for COVID-19 last month but took the right amount of precautions and went on to test negative in a week itself. This is exactly during the time when Goni posted about his entire family tested positive for the virus and even Bhasin’s mother tested positive.
While Bhasin was in Jammu with Goni and his family, her mother was far away and hence they were unable to meet. Fighting this time together, the couple opened up on the same as to how they did it in an interview with ETimes TV. Bhasin said, “We tested positive a few days apart. That’s also the reason why I had to extend my stay in Jammu. We tried to stay happy, eat healthy, and didn’t let the negativity creep in. That’s how we dealt with it. Within a week, we tested negative. But yes, the virus makes you weak, and recovering from it is another process altogether.”
When asked as to why did not post about that on social media, she said, “Too many people say too many things and that’s the primary reason I didn’t share the news on social media. The only person we need to listen to is our doctor and not others because the virus affects people differently. The first thing my doctor told me was, ‘Jasmin, don’t take undue stress.’ I listened to him, was on medication, and tried to stay positive during the lows.”
About her mother testing positive and her being away from her, Bhasin said, “I felt so helpless, as both of us were far from each other. One day, I felt angry because my mother could not find a hospital bed and posted about it on social media hoping to get some leads. Some people messaged me that I was a selfish child for being away from my mom at this time. I couldn’t tell them to not judge me, as even if I wanted to, I couldn’t be with her.”
Finally, Goni mentioned how her bond with Bhasin has actually only got stronger because of this tough time together. “My bond with Jasmin was and is strong. We are caring towards each other and that is the basic premise of any relationship. I am a sensitive person and have always valued relationships. But I would admit that COVID-19 has taught me to value them even more. What matters at the end of the day is your family and loved ones,” he concluded.
