Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who was shooting in London for the movie “Housefull” is down with Malaria, according to a source from the unit of the under-production movie “Housefull”.

The Housefull film unit source added, “Deepika recently shot for a soap ad with Pradeep Sarkar, in which she had to be under the shower for a long duration. She’s been feeling under the weather since a few days. On Tuesday, she visited a nearby hospital to get her medical reports and she was diagnosed with malaria. Yesterday, she was feeling so weak that she did not shoot for the film at all. She’s making it a point to get adequate rest because she has a long shoot schedule ahead and she also has to be in Mumbai for a couple of days to promote Love Aaj Kal.”

A day earlier Deepika had faced the camera to shoot a sequence with Akshay Kumar in spite of high fever. But producer Sajid Nadiadwala and director Sajid Khan have temporarily called off the shoot till Deepika completely recovers. It seems the London climate did not suit her, as the actress has been suffering since she landed in London. It is reported, Deepika Padukone has been under regular doses of painkillers and other medication.

Her boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor is quite upset over the news of Deepika’s illness and is in regular touch with her.
