Producer Karim Morani, who was diagnosed with COVID-19, said on Friday that he is back at his house after he tested negative for the virus.Karim, who has backed many Bollywood films, including Shah Rukh Khan's Ra.One, Chennai Express, Happy New Year and Dilwale,said his last two test results for the coronavirus were negative.

"To my friends and family with gods grace and kindness (I) am back home as I have now tested negative twice. I was very comfortable at Nanavati hospital where I remained asymptotic through my stay, I must say every department from the government to the medical warriors are doing a fantastic job," Karim Morani said in a statement.

The producer, however, will remain in quarantine for the next 14 days as a precautionary measure, he added.

"I will now quarantine as required in my room only for a further 14 days . It's a big relief to be back home thank you all for your prayers. God bless you stay safe" he added.

Talking about his battle with COVID-19, Karim Morani said, "I was discharged from the hospital on 17th April after spending 10 days there in isolation. I am back home and home is the best quarantine . I am isolated in my bedroom.   We should be more than happy if we are home . So don’t step out , stay safe stay home , you don’t want to go to hospital nor do you want our fellow Indians to get the virus. Safety begins with you - if we all follow the norms laid out by the government who are doing a fantastic job, we shall make things easier for the medical warriors who are overloaded and are risking their lives for us. I saw that in the hospital and trust me you don’t want to go there and you won’t if you practice and follow the safety norms laid out by the authorities."

He added, "If unfortunately, you do get it like me, don’t panic the medical heroes will make you okay like me they are doing a fantastic job.  I heard many patients who came into the hospital were full of fear  I was told like others - when we are in a jungle we die more of a fear of a snake then a snakebite .  I was told that I had a compromised immunity due to my health factors.  I just remained positive in my thoughts until I got a Negative Covid 19 report.  So stay positive in your mind and keep Corona out.  God is great.  In every Indians heart he wants to be a hero now is the time be your own hero you will be saving tons of poeple by following the lock down."
