The nation is taken by a wave of the infectious virus and so is Bollywood
Sonam Kapoor, who was in Gondal, Gujarat for the shoot of her upcoming film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo opposite Salman Khan, is felled with swine flu. After having complained of sore throat and fever, the actress was immediately admitted to the Sterling hospital in Rajkot Saturday morning for further testing.
A while ago, BollywoodLife had contacted Sonam's spokesperson, who informed that the tests for swine flu were being conducted but that it was too early to say anything. It has now been confirmed that the blood samples tested positive for the flu.
Rajkot district collector Manisha Chandra said, "Sonam Kapoor tested positive for swine flu today and she is being treated at Sterling hospital in the city." He also informed that she could have caught the virus from her physical trainer who was infected by the virus.
Reportedly, Sonam who reached Rajkot on Wednesday was already suffering from the infection and only got sicker by the day. Sonam, in fact, wanted to return to Mumbai two days ago to get herself treated of the fever from her family doctor. By Friday night, however, Sonam went through a severe spell of coughing and fever, following which she was rushed to the hospital Saturday morning.
The State Hospital has now ordered a thorough check of Hotel Fern (where Sonam was put up during her stay in Rajkot) for any signs of the virus and also the Riverside Palace (where she was shooting for a song) in Gondal.
