"In preparation for our trip to my home in the US, Brent Goble and I have both tested positive for Covid. We have been reeling from this news since this morning when we were just about to leave Goa. Both of us are feeling fine physically but the test reports say otherwise and that means we have to let the virus run its course. Thankfully with our active and healthy lifestyle, we aren't experiencing any deliberating symptoms. We are at our home in Goa, safe, and not in contact with anyone," Aashka wrote in her Instagram story.

The actress shared that the couple earlier got tested for Covid-19 on Saturday but the reports came negative back then. They got tested again on Monday "to be double sure". This time, their reports came positive.
"...We had tested on Saturday, and reports came back negative. Monday we tested again to be double sure, and... lockdown. While we appreciate all the concern and speed recovery wishes, I'd implore everyone reading this to please keep those who are really debilitated in your thoughts and prayer. We will be fine, while so many others may not be. Let's all hold a space for THEIR recovery, as well as those who are indirectly impacted. So much love from us," read an excerpt from Aashka's Instagram story.

I was only 16 when I moved to Mumbai, but while pursuing my acting career, I had this business virus in me, to do something in the world out there and that has finally happened. So, I felt it's time I tell everyone that acting, for now, is going on a break as I pursue my other dream."
Aashka added, "For now, it is a goodbye. Whether this sabbatical is temporary or permanent, time will tell, but I know that I am not taking up anything in acting in the coming future."
