Actor Bhumi Pednekar has tested positive for Covid-19, she announced in an Instagram post on Monday. She said that she has ‘mild symptoms’ but is otherwise feeling alright and is in home quarantine.

The statement shared by Bhumi on Instagram read, “I have tested positive for Covid-19. As of today, I have mild symptoms, but am feeling ok and have isolated myself. I am following the protocol given by my doctor and health professionals. If you have been in contact with me, request you to please get tested immediately.”

“Steam, Vit - C, Food and a Happy Mood are my go-to :) Please don't take the current situation lightly, even though I followed utmost precaution and care I've contracted it. Wear a mask, keep washing your hands, maintain social distancing and be mindful of your general behaviour,” the statement added.

Meanwhile, Bhumi's Pati Patni Aur Woh co-star Kartik Aaryan, who was diagnosed with Covid-19 late last month, has recovered. He shared a picture of himself flashing a thumbs-up sign and joked about 'passing the baton' to her.
