About three days ago, he took his father to a private hospital on bypass due to a cardiac complication. “After coming back, I was feeling a bit uneasy. Without any delay I went for the test. On Monday I got my report,” he said, adding, “I put up on social media to avoid speculations. While I had mild temperature, not more than 100 degree Fahrenheit, I have a bit of headache and body ache.
The director also added that he isolated himself on immediate effect. “Soon after I got back from the hospital, I went to a different room and stayed there. I am not coming in contact with others,” Raj told us.
The filmmaker tweeted the news of his test on Monday afternoon. His father has been hospitalised recently and his entire family will soon go through the test. Meanwhile, Subhashree Ganguly and Raj are expecting a baby by the end of September. According to our sources, there are six/ seven active Covid cases in the residential complex where the director stays.
“I have been tested COVID-19 positive. My father has been hospitalized recently, but he has been tested negative both the time. In home quarantine right now. Rest of my family members will be testing for COVID-19 too. These are the trying times,” the director tweeted.
Raj is not the first from Tollywood to be tested positive. Earlier, Koel Mallick, husband Nispal Singh Rane, father Ranjit Mallick and Deepa Mallick were tested positive.
