Chiranjeevi is Covid-19 positive.  He met the Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao a few ago.  The social media channels showed Chiranjeevi interacting with the Chief Minister without masks. This has raised questions about whether the Chief Minister will test positive as well.

Chiranjeevi becomes the latest celebrity to test positive, and this has put the schedules of his latest movie in limbo. The South mega-star made this announcement on his social networks and has said that he has self quarantined himself.

Previously, several actors were positive for the virus, with Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, and Aishwarya Rai becoming a few of the first Bollywood celebrities to test positive.  Since then, several other Bollywood celebrities have tested positive. With shoots for movies on the uptick, more and more celebrities are stepping out of the house to work and interacting with the cast and crew of movies.
