As Maharashtra becomes the most adversely affected area due to rising COVID-19 cases, Bollywood legend Aamir Khan also became a victim of corona spread. On 24th March 2021, Aamir Khan tested positive for COVID-19. It has been reported that the Laal Singh Chaddha actor has put himself under in-house quarantine.
Aamir Khan's spokesperson on Wednesday said, "Mr. Aamir Khan has tested positive for COVID-19. He is at home in self-quarantine, following all the protocols and he’s doing fine. "All those who came in contact with him in the recent past should get themselves tested as a precautionary measure. Thank you for all your wishes and concern,".
After Aamir Khan tested COVID-19 positive, his family has also distanced themselves from Aamir Khan and is currently going through COVID-19 tests. Aamir Khan's health condition is completely stable and he is likely to recover soon.
Maharashtra is witnessing a huge surge in daily COVID-19 cases. The state has reported 28,699 new COVID-19 cases, 13,165 recoveries, and 132 deaths in the last 24 hours. Due to this, a lot of Bollywood movie shootings have been either postponed or canceled.
Days before Aamir Khan's COVID-19 news surfaced, another Bollywood star Kartik Aaryan also tested positive for COVID-19.
