Actor Shah Rukh Khan has reportedly tested positive for Covid-19. Katrina Kaif is also reported to have tested positive for Covid-19, again. The actor had announced that she tested positive in April 2021. Katrina reportedly skipped the IIFA 2022 ceremony on Saturday.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted about it. “Just came to know that our Brand Ambassador Shah Rukh has been detected covid positive. Pray the fastest recovery for the superstar. Get well Shah Rukh! Spring back asap!” The news comes a day after actor Kartik Aaryan confirmed he had Covid-19. Actor Aditya Roy Kapur also tested positive for the virus, although he has not confirmed it yet.

Meanwhile, Shah Rukh revealed the first poster of his upcoming film ‘Jawan’ and said “inevitable issues” led to its delay. He had announced the film with a teaser on Friday. On Saturday, Kartik shared on Instagram that he had tested positive for Covid-19. This was the second time that he has contracted the virus. Sharing a picture of him, he tweeted, “Sab kuch itna positive chal raha tha, Covid se raha nahi gaya” (Everything was going so well, Covid couldn’t bear to be left out). Kartik has been busy promoting his latest outing 'Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2'. He was supposed to perform at the IIFA 2022 ceremony but had to skip the event.

Several media outlets have reported that filmmaker Karan Johar’s star-studded birthday party in Mumbai was a Covid-19 super-spreader event, which led to many guests testing positive in the following days.
