Neetu, who had been shooting for Dharma Productions’ Jug Jugg Jeeyo in Chandigarh for the last few weeks, posted on Instagram that she was infected with the virus a week ago.
“Earlier this week I tested positive for Covid-19. All safety measures are being followed and I am thankful to the authorities for all their help and quick response. I am in self-quarantine, taking medication on my doctor’s advice and feeling better. I am so grateful for all your love and support! Please stay safe, wear a mask, keep safe distance,” read the actor’s statement.
