He wrote, ‘Despite utmost precautions, I have tested positive for COVID-19. The symptoms are mild. Following the protocols, I have isolated myself and will be under home quarantine. I am sure I will come back stronger and better out of this. Please stay safe and take care of yourself and others. Love you all.’
In an earlier interview with IANS, the actor had opened up about never feeling like a celebrity. He said, “I do not bucket work based on what platform the work is getting released on. I am still working, learning so many things on the go so I do not associate myself with the celebrity tag. I associate myself with the tag of an actor in Indian cinema.”
He also spoke about dealing with failures in his career. “Someone very important in my life taught me there is nothing like a flop. People will continue watching (the film) at some point in time. A film is a collective creative expression of the people involved, right from spot boy, technician, art directors, stylists, designers, actors, producers, directors, assistants and more. So with strong content, a film will need strong backing from all these people. If people resonate with the work, then good, else we have another time to come back with something worthwhile,” he added.
The actor has been seen in Bollywood films such as ‘Kai Po Che’, ‘Guddu Rangeela’, ‘Sarkar 3’ and others.
