In the recent months, we have seen a lot of celebrities being COVID positive, or getting infected by COVID-19, while most of them had recovered well with time, some have lost their lives to this virus. Now, there are confirmed reports that brother of legendary South Indian actor, Chiranjeevi has tested positive for COVID-19. Scroll down to read it all!

On September 16, 2020, South Indian actor, Naga Babu took to his Instagram handle and shared a picture in which he revealed that he has been tested COVID positive. However, in the same picture, we can also read some inspiring words from the popular actor, as he promised his fans that he's going to be a plasma donor after his recovery. In his words, "An Infection doesn't always have to be a Suffering, You can always transform it into an opportunity to help the fellow Beings. Tested Covid-19 +ve. Will Scuffle & Strife through this and Will be a Plasma Donor. #covid warrior #plasmadonor." Along with thousands of his fans, it was his son-in-law, Kalyaan Dhev, who dropped a 'recovery soon' comment, and it can be read as "Speedy recovery Nagababai." Take a look:

Well, the actor shares a warm bond with his brothers and legendary actors, Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan. In an interview with TV9, when Naga Babu was enquired about the rumours of a biopic being made on the life of his brother, Chiranjeevi and his journey from scratch to one of the greatest actors of all-time. Naga had clearly denied it and had said, "When it comes to Savitri, Silk Smitha and Sanjay Dutt, their lives were full of struggles and controversies. Their personal lives were not peaceful. That's why films on their lives deserved to be made and did extremely well at the box-office. My brother Chiru, on the other hand, leads a fantastic and complete life, whether it is onscreen and off-screen." 

However, not a lot of people are aware of the fact that Naga Babu is more closer to his brother, Pawan Kalyan instead of Chiranjeevi. Well, the reason is quite controversial as according to various reports, when Naga Babu was facing one of the biggest financial crisis of his time, it was his brother, Pawan, who had helped him instead of Chiranjeevi. However, in the process, Pawan Kalyan had destroyed his second marriage with actress, Renu Desai.

According to most of the media outlets of that time, it was reported that Pawan was helping his elder brother, Nagendra from all corners and that hadn't gone well with his wife, as she was concerned that her husband would give all his money to his brother. The fights had taken a whole new level when in 2011, it was revealed that Renu had shifted to her parents' home in Pune with her kids. Despite, Pawan's constant visit to see his kids, the cracks were too deep to be filled back then. Finally, in 2012, the couple was granted divorce by the court. However, nothing has been said by Pawan Kalyan about all these reports in all these years. (Also Read: Neena Gupta Reveals The Secret Of Her Beautiful Relationship With Her Daughter, Masaba Gupta)
