Almost two weeks back, reports of Bollywood actor Kiran Kumar being tested positive of Coronavirus flooded the Internet. The actor had revealed that he was asymptomatic since the diagnosis. Recently, Kiran Kumar took to social media and informed his fans and followers that he was retested for COVID-19 and he has tested negative. During a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, Kiran Kumar spoke about his journey right from being asymptomatic to the recovery. The actor says Corona is here to stay.
Speaking about the same, Kiran Kumar told Mirror, “I have faced so many adversities that I was not shocked. I’m prepared for every eventuality life throws my way. Acceptance is necessary, especially when dealing with such crises.” He further added, “I told my wife to buy disposable utensils for me to eat in. My food would be prepared and kept on the staircase. I’d pick it up myself, eat and dispose off the plates, ensuring zero contact. I also made my own bed and cleaned the room,”
He went on to shared that while he had the luxury of having an entire floor to himself, all you need is a room to isolate yourself. He said, “You must wear a disposable mask and gloves every time you use the washroom, if it’s a shared one.”
When asked about what all he did in self-isolation, he said, “My reading choices are quite outlandish in that I believe in aliens and enjoy my Asimovs (Isaac Asimov, American writer of science fiction). I also binge-watched Star Trek, Star Wars and some Hindi films.” (ALSO READ: After Coronavirus Scare At Janhvi Kapoor's House, Two Members Of Karan Johar's Domestic Staff Test Positive For Coronavirus)
“I may be a known name but at home, my wife (Sushma) is the tigress. She never let any of us mope and my sister (Nikki), who has been pampering me like a kid, cooked my favourite dishes. My children (Shaurya and Srishti) have been tending to my every need while my support staff, Pramod and Jay, have also stood by me like a rock, instead of running away after finding out that I had tested positive,” he added.
The actor concluded saying that since he’s recovered and tested negative he can say that coronavirus is here to stay. “We all have to learn to modify our lifestyles and start living with it. There’s no vaccine yet, so, the only way to contain it is isolation. Getting infected isn’t criminal; hiding it is,” he asserts, saying it’s important to be content with what you have and start appreciating the little things in life,” he concluded.
