In an interview with the Indian Express, Bollywood’s one of the most celebrated singer and composer has revealed that his son, Dhruv, who is a Mumbai-based restaurateur has tested positive for COVID-19. The singer stated that his son is having cough and mild cold at the moment but has started taking all the medicines and precautions prescribed by the doctors. Reflecting more about his son’s situation, he said, “Dhruv was planning to travel abroad, and since there is a rule to get tested for coronavirus before travelling, he went for a voluntary test. He is asymptomatic. He has just a little cold and cough. He has quarantined himself at home and is taking all the precautions. There is nothing to worry about.”
In the same interview, Abhijeet has surprisingly revealed that he’s currently in Kolkata and is shooting with his team. But the singer has also stated that the first and foremost rule of getting the pass to get on the sets is based on the report of your COVID-19 test and if you’re negative then only you can work with the team. Talking about his own health, Abhijeet said, “I am shooting in Kolkata, and the rule is that only if you have tested negative for coronavirus, can you get on sets. So I had tested negative, and I continue to shoot.” (Don’t Miss: Kangana Ranaut Enjoys 'Maasi-Bhanja' Time With Nephew, Prithvi, Their Laughter Is Infectious [Video])
Before signing off, the actor was asked to share his views on the much-heated debate about nepotism in Bollywood after the shocking demise of late Bollywood actor, Sushant Singh Rajput. As we all know that, Abhijeet belongs to the singing fraternity of the Bollywood industry and that’s why he talked about his share of experience and admitted that during his time, things were far more pure and clear than today. He said, “It wasn’t like this before in the ‘90s. Back then, it was even unthinkable. It did happen that one song went from one singer to another, but it was authentically, not like this. Things were not so dirty at that time. A film director and music composer used to decide which singer they want, not some company or actor.” (Also Read: Shilpa Shetty Kundra Is A Proud Mommy As Viaan Raj Kundra Makes An Impressive Artwork Of An Evil Eye)
