Dhruva and Prerana, who were in a long relationship, got married in November last year.
Younger brother of the late actor Chiranjeevi Sarja, Dhruva made his acting debut with the 2012 Kannada film Addhuri. He has also starred in films such as Bahaddur and Bharjari.
He currently awaits the release of Kannada film Pogari, which also stars Rashmika Mandanna. The film was supposed to release in March but was eventually postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This is the third case of someone from the Kannada film industry testing postive for Covid-19. Recently, actor-producer Rockline Venkatesh and actor Sumalatha Ambareesh tested positive. Both of them are currently undergoing treatment in hospital.
