Akshay Kumar has shared an announcement saying that he has been hospitalised after testing optimistic for COVID-19 on Sunday. “Thank you everyone for all your warm wishes and prayers, they seem to be working I am doing fine, but as a precautionary measure under medical advice, I have been hospitalised. I hope to be back home soon. Take care,” the actor wrote on Monday morning.

“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,” the 53-year-old actor wrote on Sunday, including, “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. Back in action very soon!”

The actor was capturing for his upcoming movie Ram Setu together with co-stars Nushrat Bharucha and Jacqueline Fernandez. On Monday, it was confirmed that 45 individuals who joined the movie’s units have examined optimistic. The shoot of the movie has now been halted.

Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) president B N Tiwari confirmed this to indianexpress.com. “It’s quite unfortunate that so many people tested positive at one go. While most were junior artists, a few from Akshay Kumar’s team also tested positive for COVID-19. They have all been quarantined and provided medical attention. With Akshay also in quarantine, the shoot has been suspended as of now,” he mentioned.
