Her mother and actress Soni Razdan opened up about it and stated that Alia was under self-quarantine. She also said that she tries not to call too much to not stress Alia.

“I am in touch with her, it’s just that I try not to call her too many times. In the last few days, I have called her in the morning to check on her. I don’t want to burden her with constant calls, because if I keep doing that, it will stress her out. I sent her messages suggesting what she should eat, which is simple and light food. So, she is sorted now as far as her food is concerned,” Soni Razdan added.

She also mentioned that as Alia was shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubhai Kathiawadi, she had been testing for COVID-19 regularly. “Since Alia has been shooting, she has been taking COVID tests regularly. She has been extremely cautious, so when it happened, it was detected immediately,” she remarked.

Soni Razdan also opened up about shooting during the pandemic. She talked about how both her daughters were very supportive and told her to be careful. While talking about the rise in cases these days in Maharashtra, she says it is time to be very careful.

“It’s the need of the hour to be extra careful as the virus seems to be spreading like wildfire. I don’t feel like leaving the house. I think this happened because people became a little relaxed, they felt the COVID-19 fatigue, so while some wore masks, some didn’t, and now, we’re seeing the effects,” she said.
