In an interview with Times of India, Shweta Tiwari revealed that she felt mild symptoms on September 16 after which she immediately went for testing and found positive. “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?” Times of India quoted Shweta Tiwari as saying.

Parvarish actor also revealed that she is drinking a lot of warm water to recover faster and enjoying reading in quarantine. The 39-year-old actor said that she will get her second test done on September 27 and will stay in quarantine till October 1. Shweta has symptoms in the starting days and now she is doing well.
