As soon as this news broke out, we saw many fans of the actress started sending wishes for the speedy recovery.

Sharing that update, she had wrote on her social media account, “My parents were showing mild Covid-19 symptoms over the weekend and as a precautionary measure everyone at home underwent tests immediately. The results have just come in, and unfortunately my parents have tested positive. The necessary authorities have been updated of their situation and we are complying with the precautionary guidelines.”
Talking about her journey, the actress recently said, “I have been making a conscious effort of multitasking between genres within the South Indian film industry. I have been away from Bollywood actively to ensure there’s more versatility in my creative kitty and to ensure I’m not stereotyped into any particular genre. Versatility is the key to survival. I’ve always been passionate about cinema and I never wanted to limit myself to any one industry. There a lot of misconceptions about me, to be honest.”
The actress will be seen playing a Kabaddi coach in the upcoming Telugu film “Seetimaar”. Being a girl who never played any sport before, Tamannaah said that the challenge kicked her to take up the role. Sharing an insight into her preparation for the role, she said: “I play the coach of the Telangana kabaddi team while Gopichand plays the coach of an Andhra kabaddi team. It is a very challenging and inspiring role. It is a huge tribute to the unsung heroes in sports. I had to prepare and work very hard for this role and it constantly motivated me to give my best. It’s my first sports drama and I’m very excited. I did everything I could to look the part. I never imagined that I would get to play kabaddi in my life, let alone in a film.”
