Actor Vidya Balan, who recently contracted dengue and has been advised complete bed rest by her doctors, took to Twitter early Monday and thanked fans for their concern.

Vidya, who recently returned from a film shoot in the United States, also wrote that she was not admitted to any hospital and has been at home throughout.

Earlier, sources had told Hindustan Times that Balan will take a break from shooting Kahaani 2, her upcoming film that also stars Arjun Rampal, for at least a month.

Officials from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) conducted a thorough inspection of Balan’s sea-facing residence, Praneta Apartments at Juhu, to find potential mosquito-breeding spots. Two spots were found on an upper floor and one on the ground floor, in a flat that belongs to Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor, who recently moved in there.

BMC insecticide officer Rajan Naringrekar said, “On the upper floor, one breeding ground was found in a plastic flowerpot and another under a tarpaulin cover, put up for the monsoon, on an attached terrace. The ground-floor breeding spot was inside a defunct swimming pool in which rainwater had accumulated, creating favourable conditions for mosquitoes to breed.” Naringrekar added that both offenders will soon receive notices for failing to keep tabs on the breeding grounds.
