Prithviraj Sukumaran Tests Negative for Covid-19

Actor Prithviraj Sukumaran announced that he tested negative for Covid-19 on Tuesday evening.


Last week, the actor tested positive for Covid-19 after he was exposed to the virus on the sets of his upcoming Malayalam film Jana Gana Mana.

In a post on social media, Prithviraj stated that he will continue to be in self-isolation for one more week. He also shared medical reports of his test.

Last week, after testing positive for the virus, the actor wrote on his social media, “I’ve been shooting for Dijo Jose Anthony’s “Jana Gana Mana” since the 7th of October. We had strict protocols in place with regards to Covid regulations and associated safety measures. As is the norm, all involved in the shoot were tested before the schedule started and after the last day of shoot in the courtroom set we had put up, tests were repeated. Unfortunately, the test results this time came back positive and I have gone into isolation. I’m asymptomatic and am doing fine now. All primary and secondary contacts have been advised to isolate and get tested. Hoping to recover soon and get back to work ASAP. Cheers and thanks for the love and concern.”


The shooting of Jana Gana Mana, which will see Prithviraj reuniting with his Driving License co-star Suraj Venjaramoodu, was taking place in Ernakulam.

Earlier in the year, when the lockdown was imposed in view of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Prithviraj was shooting for Blessy’s Aadujeevitham in Jordan. The team was stranded in the location for two months before they could return to India. The actor had then announced that he tested negative for Covid-19.

Aadujeevitham is produced by KG Abraham under the banner KGA Films.
