On Sunday May 5, Bollywood king Shah Rukh Khan tested positive for COVID-19. According to several reports, Katrina Kaif tested positive recently and had to miss the IIFA 2022 event, at which her husband, actor Vicky Kaushal, was voted the best actor.

“Just came to know that our Brand Ambassador Shahrukh Khan has been detected covid positive. Pray fastest recovery for the superstar. Get well Shahrukh! Spring back asap,” Mamta Banerjee tweeted.

Numerous Bollywood stars have tested positive for the virus in recent weeks, even as the infection rate in Maharashtra has risen dramatically.

Kartik Aaryan, a Bollywood actor, tested positive on Saturday, just a week after Akshay Kumar announced that his trip to the India Pavilion at the Cannes Film Festival had been cancelled after he tested positive.

On Sunday May 5, Maharashtra reported over 1,400 Covid-19 cases, with Mumbai accounting for nearly 60% of the state’s total cases (961 new cases).
