“I feel so blessed to have overcome this virus with minimum pain and discomfort.

I can’t thank you all enough in words for what everyone has done for me in these difficult times. All of you please stay safe and take care,” she added.

She shared the news officially on Instagram. Revealing that she has been infected by the virus, she added that she is asymptomatic and is quarantined at home.

“Today I have tested positive for coronavirus but I want to inform you all that I am feeling fine. I am asymptomatic and following all the required protocols and will be quarantined at home as instructed by my doctors and authorities. I request all of you stay calm and safe. Thank you for all your support. Much love Malaika Arora,” Malaika wrote.
