Actor Maniesh Paul tests positive for COVID-19

Mumbai: After Varun Dhawan and Neetu Kapoor, actor Maniesh Paul, who was also shooting with them in Chandigarh, has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19.

A source stated that he had returned to Mumbai earlier, and soon started feeling feverish. He took the test recently and tested positive for the deadly virus.

Anil Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Prajakta Koli and Maniesh Paul had recently started filming for Jug Jug Jeeyo. The shoot was put on hold last week after three members tested positive and the rest of the team came back home. Anil, Kiara and Prajakta tested negative for the virus.

Maniesh Paul had joined the team of Jug Jug Jeeyo only toward the end of November, while the rest of the team had started shooting in the beginning of the month.
