Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor, who was admitted to a Rajkot hospital, has tested H1N1 virus positive.
Sonam Kapoor has been hospitalised in Rajkot, Gujarat, after she complained of sore throat and high fever.
"She was admitted to hospital with complaint of viral fever and we sent her samples for various tests including swine flu. She has been tested swine flu positive," Dr Chirag Matravadia, Head, Critical Care Unit at Sterling Hospital, told The Times of India.
"She is under observation in isolation ward at the hospital. Primarily it seems that she got infection from Mumbai as her trainer is also infected with swine flu and is under treatment in Mumbai," Dr Matravadia added.
Swine flu has become an epidemic in Gujarat and has claimed over 256 lives since last month. Sonam is in Gujarat for the shooting of her film "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" opposite Salman Khan.
The actress has been hospitalised for the second time in this month. Earlier this month, she was admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai after she suffered a respiratory infection while shooting for the film in Karjat.
She posted a photo of her in the hospital and wrote, "Hate being sick... Oowie."
"She started feeling nauseous and uneasy on the sets and was immediately rushed to Mumbai and admitted to the hospital," a source close to the actress told Mid-Day.
She resumed her shooting in Gujarat along with the other cast and crew of the film. Salman and Anupam Kher are also in Gondal, Rajkot.
