"I wish to inform everyone that earlier this morning I tested positive for COVID-19. Following all the protocols, I have immediately isolated myself. I'm under home quarantine and have sought necessary medical care," he tweeted.
He went on to ask everyone who has interacted with him in the last couple of days to get tested so they can take the necessary action.
"I would sincerely request all those that have come in contact with me to get themselves tested and take care. Back in action soon," the actor added.
