Mohena further thanked each and everyone in the same post for the love, messages, support and prayers her family have been receiving. Many friends, relatives and actors also showered their love and support in the comment section.

In an interview with Times Of India, Mohena confirmed the news and revealed, "Seven from our family have been tested positive for COVID-19, but we are doing fine now. Right now we are in the hospital."


"But nobody has any kind of major symptom. Coronavirus is such that it spreads like a wild fire. First my mother-in-law got it but her symptoms were so mild that we couldn't figure it out. It is our second day in the hospital, everyone is showing improvement and we will be fine soon. We are in quarantine now and getting our treatment done," she added.

Morena said that her family is asymptomatic and she is thankful for that as others are suffering even more. She also offered condolences to the migrants and poor people dying of the infections due to lack of treatment.

"We all are doing good and safe. I feel we are fortunate enough to have the facilities. There are poor people, especially the migrants who are suffering. There are so many who have been tested positive and don't get proper treatment or beds in hospitals. I also feel lucky that my father-in-law has been doing so much to help the migrants through his sanstha. We are trying to help them in the best possible way. We will humbly deal with this," Times of India quoted her as saying.
