Actor Shweta Tiwari has confirmed that she has tested positive for the Coronavirus and has also mentioned that she is currently quarantined at home. Shweta has sent her young son to her estranged husband Abhinav Kohli. At the moment, her daughter Palak will be staying with the actor.

The actress has opened up on the early symptoms she felt before getting herself tested, she talked to Times of India, “I developed a cough on September 16. Tony and Deeya (makers of her current show) said the sequence of marriage with Varun was very important and even otherwise, I felt I should not take any chances. I headed to get myself tested. Thankfully I have sufficient rooms (inside her house). So, I have quarantined myself. Palak (daughter) is also very particular about social distancing. It’s a tough time no doubt. Even on the sets, it’s so difficult to shoot. It’s so edgy at times. When will we come out of this pandemic?”

Meanwhile, her co-actor Varun has tested negative for COVID-19 and is still waiting for the results of his second test before he can get back to the sets. Varun’s wife, actor Rajeshwari Sachdev, had shared the news with her fans on social media.
