Sonam Kapoor admitted to Hospital for Swine Flu

Bollywood Actress Sonam Kapoor, who caught up with swine flu while shooting for Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ in Gujarat, was shifted to a hospital in Mumbai on Sunday morning. Sources said the actress was airlifted from a private hospital in Rajkot after she tested positive for the H1N1 virus.

In a text message, Dr Ram Narian, CEO of Kokilaben Hospital here, confirmed the buzz: “Sonam Kapoor admitted to Kokilaben Hospital at 11.30 am today. Transferred from Rajkot. H1N1 positive. On treatment. Stable in the ward (sic).”

The Dolly ki Doli actress had been running high temperature for over three days while shooting for the Salman Khan-starrer. “The actress was advised to undergo the swine flu test and tested positive,” says a source.

Sonam’s mother, Sunita, arrived at Rajkot on Saturday and decided to shift her to Mumbai for treatment. Sources at the city airport say, “Sonam walked to the ambulance and reached the hospital at around 10.30am. She, her family members as well as the security men were all wearing masks.”

Sonam is likely to stay in the hospital for at least five days, which is the normal course of treatment for the flu, to be followed by further rest of about four to five days.

The actress had fallen ill on the set of the same film at ND Studio some time ago due to a respiratory tract infection, which led to catching the deadly flu, a source claimed.

A source from the ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ production says, “Only half a day’s shoot with Sonam is pending.

The other cast members will shoot at the same location for two more days. The Udaipur schedule is expected to start from March 12.”
