He has also informed his staff to take the test, to take all the necessary precautions and follow all the guidelines.

The actor has halted the shooting of his 'Laal Singh Chaddha' after he completely recovers.

“Hey guys, thank you so much for all the love and warmth on my birthday. My heart is full. In another news, this is going to be my last post on social media. Considering that I am SO active anyway, I have decided to drop the pretence. We will continue to communicate as we did before. Lots of love, always,” Aamir had said in his statement.

Several Bollywood bigwigs have recently tested positive for the pathogen.

Ranbir Kapoor, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Manoj Bajpayee, Siddhant Chaturvedi, Tara Sutaria, Satish Kaushik, and Ajay Devgn’s Maidaan director Amit Ravindernath Sharma had tested positive for Covid-19.

Even Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s Mayur Vakani aka Sundar and Mandar Chandwadkar aka Bhide from the same show had tested positive for the virus, and so had Bigg Boss 14 contestant Nikki Tamboli and filmmaker Vinay Sapru.

On Monday, Kartik Aaryan too informed that he has tested positive for the virus.
