After Vidya Balan, now its Zarine Khan’s turn to be diagnosed with dengue. The actor is reportedly down with the vector-borne disease and is recuperating at Lilavati Hospital in Bandra.

According to sources, Ms Khan was returning from Pune on Monday when she started feeling weak and feverish. She was immediately admitted to Lilavati hospital.

“She was admitted with high fever and body ache and diagnosed with dengue on Tuesday evening. She is recovering now and is on a liquid diet,” said the source.

Ms Khan is working on Ananth Narayan Mahadevan’s Aksar 2. After making a debut in Veer opposite Salman Khan in 2010, she has acted in successful movies suchas Housefull 2 and Hate Story 3.

Last week, it was reported that Vidya Balan, who recently came back to Mumbai after shooting for Kahaani 2, was down with dengue. She has been advised bed rest for the next few days by her doctor. The actress had just returned from the US schedule of Kahaani 2. The actress is also working in Begum Jaan.

Balan resides in a building named Parineeta on Juhu Tara Road, which was found to have mosquito-breeding spots in an inspection conducted by the insecticide department of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). While no breeding sites were found in her residence, two sites were found in the residences of her two neighbours, including actor Shahid Kapoor. They have been served notices by the BMC for failing to prevent the breeding of aedes aegypti mosquitoes in their homes. These mosquitoes are the carriers of dengue and malaria.

This year, the BMC insecticide department has served 13,593 notices for mosquito breeding in residential and commercial buildings since the beginning of the year. The civic body has collected fines of Rs 27 lakh.
