Actor Aniruddh Dave has transitioned from Patiala Babes’ fame to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after his condition deteriorated due to COVID-19.
The 34-year-old actor last week shared his Coronavirus diagnosis on his Instagram account.
A source close to the representative told PTI: “He is currently being treated in a hospital in Bhopal and has contracted the virus while he was filming a series on the Internet there.”
Dev’s wife, actor Ghobi Ahuja, said in a post on Instagram that he was in critical condition and urged his fans as well as well-wishers to pray for his speedy recovery.
Many of Dev’s friends from the TV industry, including actors Asta Choudhury and Arjun Pilani, have also asked people to pray for him.
He’s in the ICU. “I need to pray for our friend anirudh_dave. He is in the ICU.” Choudhury wrote on her Instagram Stories.
Pilani published “Prayers for annirudh_dave pl plead for him”.
Dev, who started his theater career, made his TV debut in acting in 2008 with “Raajkumar Aaryyan”. He continued to appear in series like Woh Rehne Waali Mehlon Ki, Mera Naam Karegi Roshan, Phulwa, and Patiala Babes.
He has also acted in movies like Tere Sang and Shorgul and is expected to release Akshay Kumar Starrer Bell Bottom.
