The actress who was shooting for Prem Ratan Dhan Payo in Rajkot fell ill with high fever and other symptoms of swine flu. She was hospitalized and tests were done.
“She was admitted to hospital with complaint of viral fever and we sent her samples for various tests including swine flu. She has been tested swine flu positive,” Dr. Chirag Matravadia, Head, Critical Care Unit at Sterling Hospital, told.
