Bollywood Actor Shahrukh Khan has tested positive for Covid-19, according to CNN-sources. News18’s Shah Rukh Khan is the most recent actor to test positive in the last few days.
Akshay Kumar tested positive for Covid earlier this month, while reports of Kartik Aaryan and Aditya Roy Kapur testing positive for Covid-19 made headlines on Saturday.
Katrina Kaif was also found to be positive for Covid earlier in the day, although she has already recovered. More information on Shah Rukh is awaited. Meanwhile, BMC has issued an alert to the city following a significant increase in daily new cases of coronavirus.
It has also asked film companies in Mumbai’s affluent K-West district not to host parties in their facilities.
BMC has also reportedly asked studios to notify it if any parties are held so that if somebody at the party is proven to be Covid positive, the rest of the party can be tracked down.
Recently, King Khan has been making headlines for his back-to-back movie announcements. He announced his comeback flick Pathaan earlier this year, which would be released in January 2023. Deepika Padukone and John Abraham star in the key roles in the film. Later this summer, he revealed Dunki, which will be directed by Rajkumar Hirani. Taapsee Pannu co-stars with him in the film, and Vicky Kaushal is rumoured to be in it as well. The movie is set to hit theatres in December 2023.
Shah Rukh Khan shocked fans this week when he announced Jawan, his highly anticipated project with Atlee. The star teased fans with a photo of his wounded face wrapped in a bandage. In June 2023, the film will be released.
“Jawan is a universal story that transcends languages, locations, and is for everybody to enjoy,” Shah Rukh remarked in a press release about the film. Atlee deserves credit for making this one-of-a-kind film, which has also been a terrific experience for me as a fan of action movies! The teaser is only the tip of the iceberg, giving us a taste of what’s to come.”
“It’s a special @redchilliesent project that has seen its wait because of inevitable challenges surrounding us,” SRK said on social media alongside a poster for the film. But a few excellent men put forth the effort and made it happen. I’d want to express my gratitude to @ gauravverma, the Co-Producer, @atlee47, and their Jawans for making this idea a reality. Now. “Way to go, Chief!”
