Coronavirus Survivor Shrenu Parikh Addresses Weight Gain; 'Can Lose Weight Anytime I Want, But I Won’t Get My Health Back'
Ishqbaaz actor Shrenu Parikh tested positive for Coronavirus in July and after staying for a few days at the COVID hospital, she recovered from the deadly virus. However, as the actress is now taking care of her health, recently, as she was chatting with her fans, someone pointed out that she has put on weight. Addressing her weight gain, she clarified that when someone is on medication and resting, one is bound to gain weight. Even though her profession doesn't need weight gain, she said that currently, her priority is her health and not weight loss as there are a few cases of COVID relapse. 
 
While talking to TOI, Shrenu was quoted saying, "When you are on medication, resting continuously and eating a lot, you are bound to put on weight. In my profession, I can’t afford to put on weight but I want to tell everyone that it is important to rest it out, and not rush back to doing things. I know everyone wants to get back to work as soon as possible after recovery, and even I thought the same. But there have been a few cases of COVID relapse too and so, we should learn to take it easy as much as possible. I can lose weight anytime I want, but I won’t get my health back, isn’t it?"
 
She also said that her journey has been a life-changing experience but at the same time she doesn't want the virus to have any long-term impact on her health. "Nothing’s more important than staying healthy," she further added. Parikh also stated that she realized that a lot of people tend to take life for granted and that there's more to life.
