Further in the interview, Arjun Kapoor shared that even today, he is very careful and takes proper measures. The actor's doctors have advised him to take it one day at a time and relax. He also added that he has no clue as to how badly his lungs were affected or how much of his stamina was affected.

However, every once in a while he would feel like someone who has recovered from a virus because the fatigue factor would hit him badly, added the actor. He concluded saying that he was young and so was able to fight the virus. He also added that his senior family members might not be able to cope with this as easily as he could. 

On the work front, the actor is currently headed to Himachal Pradesh to shoot his upcoming flick.
