In the video shared on Instagram, SP Charan can be heard saying, “We were expecting dad’s lungs to improve in order to remove the ventilator. Unfortunately, we are still not at that point. But the good news is that dad is covid negative.”

SP Charan added that his father has been keeping himself busy by watching tennis and cricket on his iPad. He also apologised for not posting any updates during the weekend as the family was celebrating his parents’ anniversary.
