The actress also urged everyone who came in contact with her recently to get tested and thanked her well-wishers for their prayers for her speedy recovery.

“Thank you for your love and support I am currently recuperating well. Please stay home, stay safe and take care.”

Hegde isn’t alone. Earlier this morning, Oscar-winning producer Guneet Monga of ‘Lunchbox’ fame also tested positive for the virus.

“Despite taking due care and all the necessary precautions, I have tested positive for COVID-19. I’m under self-quarantine and taking all the measures to combat the virus with the guidance of my doctor. I am now recovering well,” wrote Monga.

A prominent section of Bollywood stars including Alia Bhatt, Akshay Kumar, Ranbir Kapoor, Aamir Khan and Fatima Sana Shaikh have all tested positive for COVID-19 recently. While good-wishes for their speedy recovery came their way, a section of Bollywood stars were blasted for showcasing pictures of their privileged lives as they vacationed in dreamy islands like Maldives as their country got crippled under a fierce second wave of COVID-19.
