Actor Aniruddh Dave talks about being treated for Covid-19, staying positive and how he believes karma matters. Aniruddh admits that the support of his family, doctors, nursing staff and friends from the entertainment industry helped tremendously. “Two months is a long time to be hospitalised,” says Aniruddh Dave who was treated for 55 days in a Bhopal hospital after contracting Covid-19.
“To see patients who are suffering, severe cases with various infections, hearing them howling in pain was quite tough to say the least. ”Himmat rakhna mushkil tha. It was a painful time and one couldn’t shut them out either as everyone was in one room in the ICU. After I shifted to a private room, the hustle-bustle of the hospital and watching emergency situations being dealt with was something I can never forget. Staying positive was not easy,” says the actor, who is currently in Kota, and has been advised bed rest for a month. He still feels fatigued if he stays up, walks or talks for a long time.

Aniruddh Dave admits that the support of his family, doctors, nursing staff and friends from the entertainment industry helped tremendously. “Karma does matter as if I have helped anyone in life or done any good, this is what I have earned. ”I feel maine yeh good wishes and love kamaya hai life mein. They helped in keeping up my strength and positive energy. I wouldn’t be able to talk to people as I had an oxygen mask, so I would talk in sign language over video calls or text a bit. Even now, talking about all of it is making me so emotional,” he shares.

On being asked how his wife welcomed him he says, “It felt like coming home after winning a death-defying war. My parents, wife and in-laws were happy and relieved to see me back home. Finally, I could see the apple of my eye, my little Anishq, after two months, whom I missed the most. Shopu (he fondly calls his wife Shopu) baked a cake for me and my homecoming was celebrated with fanfare. I could see the happiness on everyone’s face,” he says.
