Chandigarh, March 9

Actor Ranbir Kapoor has the COVID-19 virus, his mother Neetu Kapoor confirmed in an Instagram post on Tuesday. The 38-year-old actor is on medication, “recovering well” and quarantining at home.

“Thank you for your concern and your good wishes. Ranbir has tested positive for Covid-19. He is on medication and recovering well. He is in self quarantine at home and following all precautions,” Neetu Kapoor wrote on Instagram. Kapoor also recovered from the virus last December. Ranbir, famously private, is not on social media.

Several news outlets reported today that Ranbir had contracted the virus; Pinkvilla carried a statement from the actor’s uncle Randhir Kapoor in which he confirmed that Ranbir was COVID-positive but then qualified it by saying he wasn’t sure. “Yes,” said Randhir Kapoor when Pinkvilla contacted him, adding, “I believe he is not well, but I am not sure what he has got. I am not in town.”
