Bappi Lahiri's son Bappa, who was in Los Angeles pursuing a musical career, is back in Mumbai to look after his father.

Sadly, he cannot meet Bappida, given the Covid situation.

"My father is stable now, but he is in the ICU," Bappa tells Subhash K Jha.

"He was detected with a mild COVID-19 infection on Wednesday ,but the reason for concern is that he already has a pulmonary condition. He is in Breach Candy hospital (in south Mumbai). We can't meet him. He is under Dr Udwadia's supervision. We are relieved that he is getting the best care possible."

Trying not to sound too worried, Bappa says, "It is tough because dad is alone, and he is never been alone. Either our mom or my sister Reema or me have always been with him."

Anupam Kher posted the upsetting news that his wife Kirron Kher has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer.

'Just so that rumours don't get the better of a situation, Sikandar and I would like to inform everyone that Kirron has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer,' Kher posted on Instagram.

'She is currently undergoing treatment and we are sure that she will come out of this stronger than before.

'We are very blessed that she is being looked after a phenomenal set of doctors. She's always been a fighter and takes things head on.

'She's all heart and that's why she has so many people that love her, so please keep sending your love to her in your prayers and in your heart.

'She is well on her way to recovery and we thank everyone for their support and love.'

We pray for the speedy recovery of Bappida and Kirronji.
