Aadai director Rathna Kumar's family recovers from COVID-19 - Emotional statement goes viral!
The second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a great deal of pain and loss as the deadly infection has taken the lives of thousands around the country. As the Centre and the State governments have enforced a strict lockdown in order to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, people from all walks of life have been affected, including several notable Tamil film fraternity celebrities over the past year. In that light, popular Tamil film director Rathna Kumar informed on social media that 14 members from his family, including his 83-year-old grandmother and 15-month-old baby, tested positive for COVID-19.
Taking to Twitter, Rathna Kumar told that his entire family had endured a great deal of stress after testing COVID-19 positive and suffered for twenty days. Having shot to the limelight after his directorial debut, Meyaadha Maan, and the thriller Aadai, the new-gen director also revealed that his father, grandmother, mother-in-law and sister-in-law had to be admitted to hospital after the symptoms turned severe, but have since made a recovery, while adding that their household has returned to its normal state. Below is his tweet:
15 மாத குழந்தை முதல் 83 வயது பாட்டி வரை என் குடும்பத்தை சேர்ந்த 14 பேருக்கும் கொரோனா. அப்பா, பாட்டி, தம்பியின் மனைவி, என் மாமியார் என சிலர் Hospitalize செய்யப்பட்டு தேரினர். கடந்த 20 நாட்களாக நேர்ந்த பல மன உளைச்சல்களை கடந்து இன்று மீண்டும் இயல்புநிலைக்கு திரும்பியது வீடு🙏 🙏— Rathna kumar (@MrRathna) May 29, 2021
