Shah Rukh, Katrina test positive for Covid
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and leading actress Katrina Kaif are the latest Bollywood celebrities to have contracted coronavirus. Both are currently in home isolation in the city of Mumbai.
Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee took to Twitter to wish Shah Rukh a fast “recovery”.
“Just came to know that our Brand Ambassador Shahrukh Khan has been detected covid positive. Pray for the fastest recovery for the superstar,” Mamata wrote.
Shah Rukh is considered the most talented Bollywood star. Popularly called the “King Khan”, he has acted in over 80 films in a career spanning over 25 years. And he has a net worth of USD 700 million.
Basically a model, Hong Kong-born Katrina began her Bollywood career with ‘Boom’, an action film, in 2003 that flopped.
Two years later, she earned commercial success in the Hindi film industry with her romantic comedy ‘Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya’. And what followed was a series of box-office hits.
In December last year, the 38-year-old tied the knot with Bollywood heartthrob Vicky Kaushal at a fort in the princely state of Rajasthan in northwestern India.
A number of Bollywood celebrities, right from singer Kanika Kapoor to actors Aamir Khan, Sunny Deol and Amitabh Bachchan, have tested positive for Covid since the pandemic broke out in March 2020.
