On Thursday, actor Dulqueer Salmaan said that he has tested positive for coronavirus with mild symptoms.

"I have just tested positive for Covid19. I’m isolating at home and have mild flu symptoms but (I) am otherwise ok. People who were in close contact with me during the shoots over the last few days, please isolate and test if you notice symptoms," the "Kurup" star wrote.
A few days ago, Dulquer’s father Mammooty shared the news of his COVID-19 diagnosis on January 16, saying that he contracted the virus despite taking precautions.
