In the third week of April, actor-cum-politician Pawan Kalyan has tested positive for COVID-19 with moderate symptoms. Monitored closely by his personal doctor and a team of medical experts, the 49-year-old remained in self-isolation at his farmhouse outside Hyderabad. Finally, after 20 days, Pawan has tested negative for the novel coronavirus.
According to the statement released by his political outfit, Jana Sena, the Telugu superstar underwent an RT-PCR Test recently and was tested negative. The doctors who examined PK said that despite experiencing mild discomfort, he has no medical complications and is on his way towards a complete recovery.
At this moment, Pawan Kalyan thanked all his well-wishers, party workers and fans for their prayers. Amid the current surge of COVID cases, he urged everyone to thoroughly follow all the safety protocols and act according to the advice of medical experts.
The ‘Vakeel Saab’ star was contracted with COVID during his by-election campaign in Tirupati. While most of his staff tested positive in the following days, the actor experienced symptoms like nausea, chest congestion and mild fever. Upon getting checked in a private hospital, he immediately went into isolation.
On the work front, PK is occupied with the Telugu remake of Ayyappanum Koshiyum and “Hari Hara Veera Mallu”. Directed by Krish Jagarlamudi, the period drama is set against the backdrop of the bygone era and the recently released teaser showcased Pawan as a rebellious outlaw who takes on the British perpetrators.
Coming to Ayyappanum Koshiyum remake, Rana Daggubati will be joining hands with the Powerstar. Tentatively titled Billa Ranga, Aishwarya Rajesh has been roped in as one of the two heroines in the action thriller.
