Anupam Kher had taken to his IG handle on July 12, 2020, to inform that his mother, Dulari, his brother, Raju Kher, his wife and daughter are found having mild-COVID-19 symptoms. Excerpts of his message could be read as "COVID and my family. I would like to inform friends, well-wishers and everyone else that I had taken my mother for a check-up yesterday, as she had been experiencing loss of appetite. On doctor's recommendation, we took her for CT Scan to rule out any medical issue. Upon testing, she was found mildly Covid+. Owing to her age, we have admitted her into Kokilaben Hospital. She is doing fine. Three other members ( my brother, his wife and my niece) have also tested mildly positive."
On July 12, 2020, Anupam Kher took to his IG handle and posed a video message for his fans, expressing his gratitude towards them for their prayers. He also mentioned that his mother, Dulari, has been shifted to the isolation ward of Kokilaben hospital, whereas his brother, Raju Kher and his family are in-home quarantine. He also urged people to take social-distancing seriously. His message can be read as "Thank you for your wishes and messages of concern for Dulari @rajukherofficial and my bhabhi and niece. You all have been a great support and a solid source of strength for me. Sorry, I am not able to thank individually, but I am really touched. One more thing! Please don't treat #socialdistancing and #stayhome as mere expressions and just words. It is serious. Staying home is essential for safety. Don't experiment with it just because four months of #lockdown have passed. Wait till a vaccine comes to cure this #CoronaVirus. Thank you once again."
Earlier, Anupam Kher had also mentioned in his previous video that he had tested negative for COVID-19, and his family is now quarantining in the home. His message could be further read as "I got myself tested as well, and I have tested negative. The family has self-quarantined themselves, and we have informed the BMC. I would like to reach out to everyone with aged parents - please get your parents tested even if they show the slightest of symptoms. Despite the extreme amount of carefulness displayed by my brother and his family over the last few months, they still tested positive. So I urge everyone to take this seriously and understand that no amount of safety measures are enough. Friends, don't let your guards down. Let's be vigilant, let's be aware and let's fight the bad times together. #stayhome #staysafe #DulariWillStillRock @rajukherofficial @kherreema @vrindakher."
