Zoa, in a recent live session with Varun Dhawan, spoke about her experience in the hospital. “Ever since I came to the hospital, I have definitely felt 40 times better. My breathlessness stopped on the second day. I could feel a little congestion, and a little fever, but it’s so much better than (what) I was feeling at home,” she said.

"I am extremely grateful to the doctors, nurses and hospital staff who took care of my health and my spirits everyday. You will be in my prayers forever. No words can describe how does it feel to be home. I'm so grateful, God is great," Zoa told Press Trust of India upon her release from the hospital. "Please stay safe and follow all the rules as a lot of people out there are putting their life at risk to protect us! Lets help them," she added.

Both the sisters are under home quarantine as a precautionary measure.
