In June, the actor had undergone a COVID-19 test and the results were negative. The actor back then also shared a post where he could be seen wearing a mask and wrote that he has completed his seven days of institutional quarantine. This is what he had written- "My 7 days of institutional quarantine ends today. Now off to the next 7 days of home quarantine. A huge thanks to @oldharbourhotel and its extremely well trained staff for the hospitality and care. PS: To all those who are going to or already in home quarantine, remember..going home doesn't mean the end of your quarantine period. Do abide strictly by all quarantine regulations and make sure no person belonging to the high risk population group as stipulated by the authorities is at home." (sic)
