Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif have tested positive for COVID-19, as per media reports. A number of Bollywood celebrities have tested positive for coronavirus as all operations seem to get back to pre-COVID levels.
Last month, Akshay Kumar had tested positive for Covid and on Saturday, news of Kartik Aaryan and Aditya Roy Kapur testing positive for Covid-19 made the headlines.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted about it. "Just came to know that our Brand Ambassador Shahrukh Khan has been detected covid positive. Pray fastest recovery for the superstar. Get well Shahrukh! Spring back asap!"
Katrina was set to commence shooting on her next project 'Merry Christmas' with Vijay Sethupathi, but the shoot has been cancelled after her diagnosis. She has also skipped the IIFA awards ceremony held in Abu Dhabi where her husband Vicky Kaushal took the Best Actor award for 'Sardar Udham'. Katrina and Vicky were spotted together at director Karan Johar's birthday party on May 25. Shah Rukh with wife Gauri Khan also attended the star-studded gathering at Mumbai's Yash Raj Films studio.
However, a report by Bollywood Hungama has now claimed that Karan Johar's birthday party has turned out to be a super-spreader event leaving over 50 guests infected with Covid-19.
