Kundali Bhagya actor Sanjay Gagnani has tested positive for Covid-19. The actor plays the role of the lead antagonist Prithvi on the show. He is now in home quarantine.
He shared a fan post, which was also shared by his fiancee Poonam Preet on her Instagram Stories. Sanjay wrote, “I have been fighting since I was a child. I am not a survivor. I am a warrior. #ichoosetofightback.”
The shooting of the show was reportedly stopped as soon as the test results of the actor were announced. As per the rules, the shoot can resume only after three days and once the sanitisation of the sets has been done.
According to a Times of India report, the actor is also relying on home remedies besides medication. “I’m also doing regular steam inhalation and salt water gargles. I am sipping on warm water to soothe my throat and eating plenty of fruits,” the portal quoted the actor as saying. He had high fever since a few days and had isolated himself before he got tested for the virus.
During the day, veteran actor Himani Shivpuri announced on Instagram that she has tested positive for the coronavirus. She had been shooting for the comedy show Happu Ki Ultan Paltan.

So today morning I got admitted. I have no idea how I got COVID-19… Nobody seems to know where one would get it from,” the actor told PTI.
