Director Raj Chakrabory has tested positive for COVID-19 and been quarantined at home. Recently, Chakraborty's father was admitted to hospital but tested negative for the novel coronavirus twice.
The rest of the filmmaker's family, including his actress wife Subhasree Ganguly, who is eight months pregnant, will be undergoing tests soon.
Chakraborty himself tweeted the news in the afternoon today.
I have been tested COVID-19 positive.— Raj chakraborty (@iamrajchoco) August 17, 2020
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.
Actress Ganguly had announced her pregnancy in May.
The director, meanwhile, had been attending office regularly but had told all his staff to work from home. He has also not started shooting for any film. So he is a little worried how he contracted the virus.
Fans and admirers have been sending good wishes and prayers for the couple and the unborn child since Chakraborty posted his tweet.
