Bollywood celebs who tested positive for COVID-19 in second wave
Amid the second wave of COVID-19 in India, several Bollywood actors have been diagnosed with the Coronavirus.
At the start of this year, Bollywood wanted to believe that the worst phase of COVID-19 has come to an end as the theatres across the county were reopened and the focus was largely getting shifted to releasing the big-budget films in the following months. However, the initial euphoria was short-lived as India was soon hit by the second wave in March. The film industry, which is one of the badly-hit industries due to the coronavirus pandemic, has once again succumbed to coronavirus outbreak leading to a halt in film shoots. From Aamir Khan to Akshay Kumar, many prominent Bollywood stars have also tested positive for COVID-19 in recent months.
