Kubra Khan has tested positive for Covid-19, the actor shared in an Instagram post. The Hum Kahan Ke Sachay Thay star took to social media and penned a heartfelt note on how she has learned to appreciate 'small things in life' while she struggled with her health recently. 

Kubra wrote, "We as human beings have the funniest scales to measure what’s a big or a small deal. We are waltzing around this world given temporarily to us taking everything and everyone for granted." She went on, "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? I tested positive for Covid a little while ago. And all these “small things” didn’t feel so small anymore."

The Parwaaz Hai Junoon star then revealed she's on the road to recovery and she's been very grateful to the Almighty.

"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 but a “small thing” smelling chai that all Allah (SWT) made possible," she remarked. 

Kubra then relayed, "I guess what I’m trying to say is that 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] as well. I do that too but not disregarding the luxuries we’ve been given by Allah (SWT)."

She concluded by saying, "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, make-up-less, filterless, energy-less but Grateful to the max. Allah is Great."
