Megastar Chiranjeevi Tested COVID-19 Negative, Says Earlier Result Was Due To ‘Faulty’ Test Kit

Hyderabad: Popular Telugu actor and politician K. Chiranjeevi said he has tested Covid negative on Thursday as the earlier result was a false positive.

“A group of doctors did three different tests and concluded that I am Covid negative and that the earlier result was due to a faulty RT PCR kit,” said Chiranjeevi.

The Praja Rajyam party founder and former central minister thanked everyone for the love and concern showered for his wellbeing.

“My heartfelt thanks for the concern, love shown by all of you during this time. Humbled!” said the megastar, who originally came from Mogalturu village near Narasapuram in West Godavari district.

The 65-year-old actor shared an image of his latest Covid test which declared SARS-Cov-2- RNA detection negative.

Earlier, the megastar on Monday had informed that he had tested positive for coronavirus and requested everyone who had come in contact with him in the last few days to undergo Covid tests.

“Took a test for Covid-19 before resuming period drama ‘Acharya’ film’s shoot as a protocol and unfortunately tested positive,” Chiranjeevi had tweeted.
