Stating that he is currently in Dubai and getting to spend some quality time with his son, the artiste said, “I am in Dubai. I had to come to India to perform in Bhubaneswar and shoot for Super Singer season 3. I got myself tested and I was Covid positive. I got myself retested, I was still positive. I got myself retested, retested and I still turned out to be positive. But I think people will have to live with it. I have done concerts while suffering the flu, viral and congestion, and this is much better than that. I am Covid positive, but I am not dying. My throat is also fine. But I feel bad for the people who have faced loss because of me.”
