Mumbai: Sonu Sood on Saturday said he has tested positive for Covid-19 and is currently under quarantine, nearly ten days after receiving the vaccine.
The actor was recently made the brand ambassador for Punjab's anti-coronavirus vaccination programme.
The 47-year-old actor, who catapulted to the national spotlight for helping migrants reach their home states during the nationwide lockdown last year, said he will continue his work for those in need.
"This is to inform you that I have tested positive this morning for Covid-19. As a part of precautions, I have already quarantined myself and taking utmost care.
