Bollywood actor Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao once suffered from H1N1 virus (swine flu), and both of them were treated at their residence
In 2017, Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao had contracted swine flu (H1N1 virus), and both of them were treated at their residence.
Aamir Khan and Kiran were not able to attend an event of their NGO Paani Foundation, which was then held in Pune. Instead of Aamir, Shah Rukh Khan attended the event.
In a video, Aamir and Kiran had talked to their fans and told them about it, "It is a very happy day for us, but we are upset that after putting in efforts for one year, we could not be there to celebrate the day with you. We have been detected with H1N1 virus. It is known as swine flu commonly. It spreads easily and therefore we have to remain in isolation for a week."
Both were treated by Dr Mini Khetarpal, epidemiology in-charge at the BMC, who also gave reports about Aamir and Kiran to the media.
A source close to the Khan family had then said, “Home isolation cuts the chain of transmission of viruses like H1N1. A busy person like him may go out and land up infecting many others.”
