Actor Ram Charan on Tuesday took to Twitter to inform his fans that he has tested positive for the coronavirus. He, however, clarified that he has no symptoms and has decided to quarantine at home.

Ram posted a text which read: “I have tested positive for Covid-19. No symptoms and quarantined at home. Hope to heal soon and come out stronger.” His tweet said: “Request all that have been around me in the past couple of days to get tested. More updates on my recovery soon.”


Only on Monday, pictures of the actor’s surprise visit to the sets of his father Chiranjeevi’s upcoming film, Acharya, had gone viral. He had met the film’s director Koratala Siva and the film’s production designer Suresh Selvarajan. Suresh had posted some pictures too. He had written: “Sir, even I get goosebumps whenever I think about what you said about the set. Your kind words of appreciation mean a lot to me. It makes me work even harder.”

Acharya is jointly produced by Ram Charan along with Niranjan Reddy of Matinee Entertainment.

Earlier this month, Ram Charan along with his wife Upasana, Chiranjeevi and other close family members including Allu Arjun, had jetted off to Udaipur for the destination wedding of actor Niharika Konidela.
