Last week, Aniruddh Dave took to social media to share that he has been diagnosed with Covid-19. He wrote, “Chaha toh bohot ki tumse mulaqat na ho. Woh kahawat hai na bakre ki amma kab tak khair manayegi, bahar aao toh shikaar hona hi hai (I never wanted to meet coronavirus. As they say, a goat is never safe, he will be hunted down as soon as he steps out).”
The actor had isolated himself and was being treated under the supervision of doctors at home. In his social media post, the Patiala Babes actor requested people who came in contact with him to get tested as well. “Jeevan mein bohot positive hoon, bas yehi negative chahta tha… Haan, waqt yeh bhi guzar jayega. Bohot bohot pyaar (I am very positive about life, I just wanted my report to be negative. This too shall pass. Lots of love),” he concluded his note.
