Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh flew down to Bangaluru last month to spend some time with family right before the lockdown started. While they have been staying at home during these tough times, news of Prakash Padukone, International Badminton player and Deepika’s father was reported this morning.
Following this, news of his wife, Ujjala and younger daughter, Anisha contracting the virus also made it to the headlines and now, we find out that Deepika too has caught the virus. A source close to the family revealed that Deepika’s parents had started showing symptoms about ten days ago and had tested positive last week. He further shared that her father is better and said, “He is okay now. All his parameters are fine, his wife and daughter are at home and he too will be hopefully discharged in 2-3 days.”
The entire family is currently home-quarantined in Bangaluru. We still do not know if Ranveer Singh has also been exposed to the virus, but we hope he is healthy and hearty and wish the Padukone family a speedy recovery.
