It has been two years since the novel coronavirus wrecked all our lives including stars. The first wave was difficult as one was coping with the new normal and threats of contracting the virus, the second wave was even more fatal with many getting affected and taking away many lives. Several celebs tested positive and Deepika Padukone was one among them.

In the first wave Deepika was locked up in self quarantine with Ranveer Singh but during the second wave when she went to meet her family in Bangalore felt sick with all of them. Her father Prakash Padukone was also admitted to the hospital.

The actress who is awaiting the release of Gehraiyaan with Siddhant Chaturvedi in a recent interview with film critic Anupama Chopra spoke at length about her experience with Covid. She said that she was put on steroids and the experience made her unrecognisable. She was affected both health wise and mentally and had to take two months break from work to cope up and get her head running again.

Further talking about her life post Covid, Deepika said her mind was not working and the phase was very difficult to cope up with.

During the first wave Deepika posted several social media updates about how she and Ranveer are adjusting to the lockdown. From working out together to trying new recipes, Deepika and Ranveer made the most of the time.

The mega trailer launch event of Gehraiyaan that was scheduled on her birthday today was canceled after Mumbai faced a surge in Covid cases lately and Deepika was seen flying to Maldives with her husband to spend her birthday. Ranveer recently shared a post where the actress was seen mimicking his dialogue in the recently released ‘83’ .
