After Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan, actor Anupam Kher's mother Dulari, brother-actor Raju Kher, his wife and daughter have also tested positive for COVID-19. Kher's mother is reportedly admitted to Mumbai's Kokilaben hospital.

The veteran actor took to Twitter to confirm the news. "This is to inform all that my mother Dulari is found COVID + (Mildly). We have admitted her into Kokilaben Hospital. My brother, bhabhi & niece in spite of being careful to have also tested mildly positive. I got myself tested as well & I have tested negative. @mybmc is informed.! [sic]" Kher wrote on Twitter, along with a video.

"I would like to inform friends, well-wishers and everyone else that I had taken my mother for a check-up yesterday, as she had been experiencing loss of appetite. On doctor's recommendation, we took her for CT Scan to rule out any medical issue. Upon testing, she was found mildly Covid +," he said.

Kher continued: "Owing to her age, we have admitted her into Kokilaben Hospital. She is doing fine. Three other members (my brother, his wife and my niece) have also tested mildly positive. I got myself tested as well and I have tested negative. The family has self-quarantined themselves and we have informed the BMC. I would like to reach out to everyone with aged parents - please get your parents tested even if they show the slightest of symptoms. Despite the extreme amount of carefulness displayed by my brother and his family over the last few months, they still tested positive. So I urge everyone to take this seriously and understand that no amount of safety measures are enough. Friends, don't let your guards down. Let's be vigilant, let's be aware and let's fight the bad times together."

A number of fans expressed their best wishes for the veteran actor's family.
