Actor Nikita Dutta on Wednesday said she has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently in isolation. The 27-year-old actor, who was recently shooting for her film “Rocket Gang”, said she tested positive on April 3 and is on a path to recovery. Dutta said because she contracted the virus, she could not attend some of the on-ground promotions of her upcoming film “The Big Bull”.
“I am feeling pretty good and I am in complete isolation. Since I tested positive, I couldn’t be a part of the promotions offline but it’s fine.
My friends and family have kept me sane and in high spirits. I need all the love and prayers, more for the movie and less for my recovery since I have recovered pretty much and doing the time currently,” Dutta said in a statement.
