Anirudh Dave is finally on his way back home after 55 days of hospitalisation. The actor, who was shooting in Bhopal for a web series, tested positive for Covid-19 in April. While initially, he was in home quarantine, he was rushed to the ICU after his condition worsened. After battling the disease and being on constant oxygen support for almost two months, he was discharged on Friday.
The team of Patiala Babes actor shared a video of Anirudh thanking the medical team at the hospital for looking after him. He even called them ‘real heroes’. The entire hospital cheered for the actor and posed with him for pictures before he stepped into his car and drove off.
“This is a new life and I will never forget the love I got from all of you,” an emotional Anirudh told the doctors and nurses outside the Bhopal hospital.
