Veteran actor Kiran Kumar, who's well-known for playing negative characters in many Bollywood films, has finally beaten COVID-19 after testing positive a few days ago. The actor is currently under home isolation and while speaking to a media portal, he revealed how he beat the novel coronavirus with positivity and constant support of his family.
Kiran Kumar told Mumbai Mirror, "I told my wife to buy disposable utensils for me to eat in. My food would be prepared and kept on the staircase. I'd pick it up myself, eat and dispose of the plates, ensuring zero contact. I also made my own bed and cleaned the room. You must wear a disposable mask and gloves every time you use the washroom, if it's a shared one."
The Dhadkan actor also asserted that when he was diagnosed with COVID-19, his family was sick worried about him, but they are very optimistic in nature, and hence boosted Kiran's morale during his battle against COVID-19.
When asked about how he kept his mind occupied while maintaining self-isolation, he said, "My reading choices are quite outlandish in that I believe in aliens and enjoy my Asimovs (Isaac Asimov, American writer of science fiction). I also binge-watched Star Trek, Star Wars and some Hindi films."
While praising his family, Kumar said, "I may be a known name but at home, my wife (Sushma) is the tigress. She never let any of us mope and my sister (Nikki), who has been pampering me like a kid, cooked my favourite dishes. My children (Shaurya and Srishti) have been tending to my every need while my support staff, Pramod and Jay, have also stood by me like a rock, instead of running away after finding out that I had tested positive."
Kiran Kumar's recovery story is indeed very helpful to bust some myths around the virus!
