Veteran actor Anupam Kher on Sunday (July 12) said his mother, Dulari, and brother Raju and his family have tested positive for COVID-19 and are currently under quarantine.

Sharing a video on Twitter, Kher said his mother wasn't eating for the past few days and even got her blood tests done, which showed nothing alarming.

"But then our doctor advised us to take her to a CT scan centre and get her scanned and it turned out she was COVID positive, mild," he said.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I would like to inform friends, well-wishers and everyone else that I had taken my mother for a check-up yesterday, as she had been experiencing loss of appetite. On doctor’s recommendation, we took her for CT Scan to rule out any medical issue. Upon testing, she was found mildly Covid +. Owing to her age, we have admitted her into Kokilaben Hospital. She is doing fine. Three other members ( my brother, his wife and my niece) have also tested mildly positive.I got myself tested as well and I have tested negative. The family has self-quarantined themselves and we have informed the BMC. I would like to reach out to everyone with aged parents - please get your parents tested even if they show the slightest of symptoms. Despite the extreme amount of carefulness displayed by my brother and his family over the last few months, they still tested positive. So I urge everyone to take this seriously and understand that no amount of safety measures are enough. Friends, don’t let your guards down. Let’s be vigilant, let’s be aware and let’s fight the bad times together. 🙏🙏#stayhome #staysafe #DulariWillStillRock @rajukherofficial @kherreema @vrindakher

"My brother and I also got ourselves tested, where Raju tested mildly positive while I was negative. My sister-in-law and niece also tested mildly positive," the actor added.

The 65-year-old actor said while his mother is admitted to Kokilaben Hospital, his brother's family is quarantining at their home.

"I've informed the BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) and they're working amazingly, efficiently. They will sanitise my brother's residence," he said.

The news comes a day after Amitabh Bachchan and his son Abhishek Bachchan tested positive for COVID-19 and were admitted to Nanavati Hospital.
