Malayalam star actor Prithviraj Sukumaran has tested positive for COVID-19. The 38-year-old actor revealed the news on social media that he was diagnosed with coronavirus while he was shooting for filmmaker Dijo Jose Anthony’s “Jana Gana Mana.”
“Hello everyone, I have been shooting for Dijo Jose Anthony’s Jana Gana Mana since October 7. We had strict protocols in place with regards to Covid regulations and associated safety measures. As is the norm, all involved in the shoot were tested before the schedule started and after the last day of shoot in the courtroom set we had put up, tests were repeated. Unfortunately, the test results this time came back positive and I have gone into isolation,” Prithviraj said in his statement.
He also said he is asymptomatic and doing fine now. All primary and secondary contacts are advised to isolate and get tested. The Driving Licence actor is hoping to recover soon and get back to work as soon as possible.
