Through her Instagram stories, Kaif said, “I have tested positive for Covid-19. Have immediately isolated myself and will be under home quarantine.

Several Bollywood celebrities have been affected amid the resurgence of the Covid-19 pandemic in Mumbai. Earlier on Monday, Akshay Kumar was hospitalised while Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar informed on social media that they have contracted the coronavirus. While Bhumi has mild symptoms and has isolated herself, Vicky is also living under home quarantine and taking medicines prescribed by his doctor.
With Maharashtra being the most COVID-affected state at 4,52,445 cases, the Mumbai-based entertainment industry, which was trying to return to normalcy post last year's nationwide lockdown, has suffered a major blow.
Actor-director Seema Pahwa and Abhijeet Sawant, the winner of the first season of singing reality show "Indian Idol", have also contracted the virus and are under isolation.
Earlier in the day, actors Kartik Aaryan and Milind Soman tested negative for COVID-19.
Govinda and "Bandish Bandits" actor Ritwik Bhowmik had tested positive for the virus over the weekend.
