    Recounting her ordeal, Malaika Arora in a chat with mid-day said she decided to make a trip to the doctor when some close acquaintances and a few crew members of India's Best Dancer complained of health issues. "Luckily, my family had not contracted the virus. I was shocked when I tested positive because I had not shown any major symptoms or experienced discomfort. I was advised to self-quarantine at home. I made sure that I didn't step out of my room, and didn't come in contact with anyone, including my son [Arhaan], the house staff and our dog Casper," says the actor-dancer.

    Malaika Arora believes that her devotion to fitness held her in good stead as her body began its combat against the virus. "I did not have breathlessness, but showed some mild symptoms. I complained of weakness, which tends to happen when your body is fighting a disease. While I couldn't practise my yoga routine as I was weak, I made sure I performed the basic asanas, and practised breathing exercises like anulom vilom and kapalbhati."

    It was difficult for Malaika Arora to face the days alone, without son Arhaan by her side. She had dedicated a post to him and their pooch Casper, lamenting how she was yearning to hug them. "The biggest challenge was not being able to meet my son. We spoke to each other from our balconies."

    Sophie Choudry on how she has always felt an affinity for the sport said, "I think being Indian, cricket is in our genes. On top of it, I was born and brought up in England, my brother played cricket, my school was next to Lord's cricket ground so I saw it every single day... And the IPL is so special. I've been fortunate to attend many matches in the past... I know this year is very different without the live crowds but kudos to everyone that has made it happen. It is much-needed entertainment for all of us. It feels like with COVID and so many other things, there has just been nonstop negativity this year. I think we all need to have some fun, something to lift our spirits and cricket does that."
