“Safe and sound and good to have him back around. #allizwell,” wrote Khanna, alluding a popular line from Aamir Khan’s heartwarming blockbuster ‘3 Idiots’.
On April 4, the 53-year-old actor had revealed that he tested positive for the coronavirus and was under home quarantine. The ‘Khiladi’ star took to his Twitter to reveal his diagnosis.
“I wish to inform everyone that, earlier this morning, I have tested positive for COVID-19. Following all the protocols, I have immediately isolated myself... I am under home quarantine and have sought necessary medical care. I would sincerely request all those that have come in contact with me to get themselves tested and take care of. Back in action very soon!,”posted Kumar. He seems to have stuck to his word.
According to reports, Kumar was shooting for his upcoming movie ‘Ram Setu’ with Jacqueline Fernandez and Nushrratt Bharuccha, when he tested positive. Kumar is also working on several projects including ‘Housefull 5’, ‘Bachchan Pandey’, ‘Atrangi Re’, ‘Bell Bottom’ and ‘Sooryavanshi’. His film ‘Sooryavanshi’, which was up for release this April, has been postponed due to the rising cases of COVID-19 in India.
