Deepika Singh’s mother and grandmother tested positive for Covid-19 recently.

TV actor Deepika Singh has responded to allegations that she was being insensitive by sharing videos while her mother fought Covid-19. She said that it was because of the videos that she got quick response.

Deepika told The Times of India in an interview, “Many people dissed me for being active on social media while my mother was unwell. Well, I strongly feel that help reached in time because I posted that video. My father ran from pillar to post, but in vain. I couldn’t travel to Delhi, because my son, Soham, is only three years old. Seeing no other way to secure help, I posted the video. Almost immediately, I received a call from Delhi Government officials, and I am thankful to them.”

After Deepika’s urgent request for help went viral, the Delhi government took cognisance and got her mother admitted to the Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. The actor’s grandmother Sheila Devi also tested positive later.

She’s back home & safe. Grateful to everyone who have been a big support in this journey. Dil se shukriya,” she wrote.

 

She added, “Now just waiting and praying for my grandma to recover as she has also been diagnosed positive & still in hospital. Please do keep her in your prayers. Although Thank you is not enough but I don’t have a better word.
