Kubra Khan recently took to social media to announce that she has tested positive for Covid-19. The actor shared that she’s on the road to recovery now. She also took this as an opportunity to share her newfound appreciation towards “the small things in life”.

“We as human beings have the funniest scales to measure what’s a big or a small deal,” she began her thought-provoking post. “We are waltzing around this world given temporarily to us taking everything and everyone for granted. Something as many would say “as small as smelling the morning tea” or “breathing in a normal rhythm”… it’s basic… normal isn’t it?” she continued.

“I tested positive for Covid-19 a little while ago. And all these ‘small things’ didn’t feel so small anymore. Grateful to Allah (SWT) I am on a road to recovery now. This morning I smelt a hint of my tea and bawled out in tears out of gratitude to Allah. In the past week I had chicken karahi, Nutella cake, chocolate brownies, all my favourites in front of me. I couldn’t taste or even smell any of them. All that we work for weren’t able to lift me up, except for the ‘small thing’ of smelling chai that Allah (SWT) made possible,” she further wrote.

“I guess what I’m trying to say is it’s important to strive to live your best life and become the best version of yourselves. I do it myself and it’s normal to complain about ‘the big things’. ‘Paisa, kapra aur makaan’ [Money, clothes and housing]. I do that too but do not disregard the luxuries we’ve been given by Allah ( SWT). Gratitude changed my life. Realising the ‘small things are the real big deals’ changed my life. So here I am, in a shirt that I haven’t changed in the past three days, makeup-less, filterless and energy-less but grateful to the max. Allah is Great,” she wrote.

The actor has been receiving great appreciation from fans as well as critics for her performance as Mashal in the ongoing drama Hum Kahan Ke Sachay Thay. Her co-actor in the drama, Mahira Khan, also wished her heath and healing.



We wish Kubra good health and a speedy recovery.
