Prithviraj and director Dijo Jose Antony test positive for Covid-19 while shooting for Jana Gana Mana
Actor Prithviraj Sukumaran has been tested positive for Covid-19. He was shooting for his new film ‘Jana Gana Mana’ when he was diagnosed. The film’s director Dijo Jose Antony has also tested positive. Prithviraj has shared a note in his social media handle informing that he is asymptomatic and doing well. His post reads,
I’ve been shooting for Dijo Jose Anthony’s “Jana Gana Mana” since the 7th of October. We had strict protocols in place with regards to Covid regulations and associated safety measures. As is the norm, all involved in the shoot were tested before the schedule started and after the last day of shoot in the courtroom set we had put up, tests were repeated. Unfortunately, the test results this time came back positive and I have gone into isolation. I’m asymptomatic and am doing fine now. All primary and secondary contacts have been advised to isolate and get tested. Hoping to recover soon and get back to work ASAP. Cheers and thanks for the love and concern. 😊
‘Jana Gana Mana’ has Prithviraj and Suraj Venjaramoodu playing the lead roles in the film. Since Prithviraj and the director has tested positive, all the crew members are expected to be in isolation for the next few days.
