Veteran actor Anupam Kher’s mother Dulari, his actor-brother Raju Kher, sister-in-law Reema and niece Vrinda have all tested positive for COVID-19.
In a video shared on social media, Kher said his mother's appetite had been poor and she had been feeling weak for some time. But her blood test was normal. So, on the doctor’s suggestion, a COVID-19 test was done and the result was positive.
