Deepika Padukone opens up on her battle with Covid-19 'I was unrecognisable'

Deepika Padukone revealed in a recent interview that the after-effects of Covid-19 took a toll on her body and how all this made her take a two-month break from work. 

Deepika Padukone recently spoke to Film Companion about the 'difficult phase' when she was infected with Covid-19. The actress revealed that she was 'physically unrecognisable' at that time.

Deepika Padukone had tested positive for Covid-19 in May last year. The actress never posted any Covid-19 update while recovering, she has now opened up about her battle with the deadly virus.

Speaking about how COVID-19 changed her life, Deepika told the news portal, 'Life after Covid changed for me because physically, I was unrecognisable completely. I think due to the medication I was given, the steroids that I was put on. So Covid in itself was weird, your body feels different, your mind feels different.

The actress said that it wasn't the illness that affected her as much but the after-effects of it, which forced her to take a short break. She continued, 'I felt that when I had the illness it was still okay but after that, I needed to take two months off work because my mind wasn't working. The phase for me was very, very difficult.'

On the work front, Deepika Padukone will next be seen in Shakun Batra's ‘Gehraiyaan’ co-starring Siddhant Chaturvedi, Ananya Panday and Dhairya Karwa. The film is slated to release on February 11 on Amazon Prime Video.
