He is asymptomatic. He has just a little cold and cough. He has quarantined himself at home and is taking all the precautions. There is nothing to worry.”

The team of Dil Bechara which included Amitabh Bhattacharya has got together virtually on Wednesday for a musical tribute to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

Dhruv who runs a restaurant in Mumbai will be tested for COVID-19 again in a few days.
