Telugu megastar Chiranjeevi on Monday announced that he has tested positive for the novel coronavirus. He said that he is asymptomatic, and got a Covid test done as part of safety protocol before joining the sets of his upcoming movie Acharya.
“I am currently asymptomatic & quarantining myself at home. Request all those who met me in the last 5 few days to also undergo covid tests. Will update you on my recovery soon,” he said in his statement.
Acharya is written and directed by Koratala Siva. The shoot came to a halt in March following the coronavirus-induced lockdown.
According to reports, just a few days ago, Chiranjeevi had met Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao.
