From Akshay Kumar, Aamir Khan, the Bachchan family, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Kartik Aryan, Aditya Narayan and his wife, Shweta Agarwal, Varun Dhawan to Arjun Kapoor, Malaika Arora, Deepika Padukone and many more, the COVID-19 has brought the entire world to a standstill and the celebrities are also getting infected with the deadly virus. While some fought the battle and emerged as winners, some are fighting for their lives in the hospitals and some have lost the fight with COVID-19. Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra's family, including the latter, are the recent ones to join the list, who got infected with the virus.
Since the time pandemic was announced in 2020, Shilpa Shetty Kundra has been giving glimpses of her family life, how they're coping up with the stay-at-home orders and the way her little one, Viaan Raj Kundra is keeping himself busy during the lockdown. On Holi 2021, Shilpa had posted a family picture with Raj Kundra, Viaan and Samisha Shetty Kundra. She had captioned the pictures as "Happpppyyyyyy Holiiiiii to all my instafam from all of us." Raj had posted a Holi special picture with Shilpa and captioned it as "The colours of happiness and joy are the most beautiful colours of life. May they stay with us forever @theshilpashetty you brighten up my life. Happy Holi everyone #holi #festival."
Shilpa Shetty Kundra informed her fans about her family, including her parents-in-law, Mr and Mrs Kundra, her mother, Sunanda Shetty, husband, Raj Kundra and their kids, Viaan Raj Kundra and Samisha Shetty Kundra testing positive for COVID-19. In her note, Shilpa wrote, "The last 10 days have been difficult for us as a family. My parents-in-law tested positive for COVID-19, followed by Samisha, Viaan-Raj, my Mom, and lastly, Raj. They've all been in isolation in their rooms at home as per the official guidelines and have been following the doctor's advice."
Revealing that she had tested negative for COVID-19, Shilpa Shetty Kundra continued, "Two of our in-house staff members have also tested positive and they're being treated at a medical facility. By God's grace, everyone is on the road to recovery. My tests came back negative. All safety measures have been followed as per protocol and we're grateful to BMC & authorities for their prompt help & response. Thank you for all your love & support. Please continue to keep all of us in your prayers. Please mask up, sanitize, stay safe; and whether COVID positive or not…STILL stay POSITIVE, MENTALLY."
It was in February 2020 when Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra had welcomed their second child, Samisha Shetty Kundra. In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, when Shilpa was asked if it was difficult for not letting Viaan feel ignored after the arrival of Samisha, she had retorted, "It was really hard because my son is nearly nine and he is doing virtual school. To be a hands-on parent, with a newborn, not making him feel like he is being ignored, because he has always been the apple of my eye and all of ours, was a hard task." For Shilpa, lockdown turned out to be a blessing in disguise as she could spend quality time with both her little ones.
We wish them a speedy recovery!
