In the midst of the coronavirus scare, Bollywood star Sonam Kapoor is looking back at the time she contracted the swine flu.

Reacting to the news of a new strain of the flu getting discovered in China, the Khoobsurat actor turned to her Instagram and revealed that she too had a version of the swine flu.

“I’ve had a version of the swine flu...I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s one of the most difficult things I’ve gone through. I hope this isn’t true,” she wrote on her Instagram Story.

Researchers have claimed that the newly discovered descendent of the 2009 virus could lead to a potential pandemic.

The actor had gotten infected with a version of the disease back in 2015 prior to her filming of Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo in Gujraat. After complaining of mild fever, cough and cold, Sonam was airlifted to a Mumbai hospital.
