The 44-year-old actor, daughter of veteran actor Mohan Babu, shared a note on Instagram informing her followers of her diagnosis.

"After playing hide and seek for two years... And screaming 'Go corona go', COVID-19 has finally caught me. I did give it a good fight but it had other plans. I am taking all the necessary precautions to get out of its clutches. PSA to all- Let's stay at home, stay safe and mask up," the post read.
