Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya on Friday said that his son Dhruv Bhattacharya tested positive for coronavirus. Dhruv, who is a Mumbai-based restaurateur, showed no symptoms of the virus but had to get the test done because of his international travel plans, said Abhijeet.
“Dhruv was planning to travel abroad, and since there is a rule to get tested for coronavirus before travelling, he went for a voluntary test. He is asymptomatic. He has just a little cold and cough.” Dhruv Bhattacharya is currently in home quarantine, the singer told the publication: “He has quarantined himself at home and is taking all the precautions. There is nothing to worry,” the singer said.
However, the singer has tested negative and revealed that he is currently busy with shoots in Kolkata. Before joining the sets, he had to take a mandatory COVID-19 test and was found negative, Abhijeet was quoted by a national media: “I am shooting in Kolkata, and the rule is that only if you have tested negative for coronavirus, can you get on sets. So I had tested negative, and I continue to shoot,” he said.
India has over 12 lakh positive cases of the coronavirus with Maharashtra being the worst affected state. After months of lockdown, the country is in unlock mode, which is a phase-wise easing of lockdown restrictions across states.
