I’m still hospitalised, it’s been eight days, though I’m in the normal ward. I have improved a lot, (but) the oxygen still goes up and down. Both my lungs were infected.”

The actress further added, “I was super scared because I have never come to a point in my life where I can’t take a breath and I’m about to faint. Every time I was coughing it was painful, (And) I was thinking, ‘What is going on?’ as we had no clue.”
Although she is out of danger as of now, she is making sure that she is completely fine and healthy before she gets discharged. Very few people were aware of the incident. Only her close friends, family, and colleagues from the show (Naagin 6) were in the know about her condition. She said that she didn’t want to be burdened to reply to countless messages asking for updates about her health. Meanwhile, Chahal’s mother flew down from Norway two days post the incident.
Mahekk says that the reason for her health condition is because of her constant trips to various cold locations which led to her catching a severe cold. She concluded saying, “I thought I had a normal cold, so I was doing all the remedies. I didn’t realise that the cold and the cough were so severe. Now I don’t want to take any chances, so I want to get 100% fit and then get discharged.”
