Housefull 4 star Kriti Kharbhanda in an interview stated that she was terrified after her recent episode with flu and she was worried that she had contracted Coronavirus. She also informed that at that time she could not get tested back then as the kits were not available in India. Speaking to a leading media publication, Kharbhanda claimed that she started showing symptoms after she landed back at home after an International trip. "The doctors advised me to distance myself and monitor my symptoms. I was paranoid for the first three days, then, I started to feel better,” she said.
At the moment, Kriti is living with her boyfriend Pulkit Samrat. She said he moved into the same building as hers and the couple now spend their days together playing board games. “We had decided to stay in the same building to dodge traffic, but now, I am grateful to have him with me. I can’t imagine how other couples who don’t stay together are dealing with the lockdown,” she said.
