Rakul Preet Singh Tests Negative for Covid-19

Rakul Preet Singh, the actor, has tested negative for Covid-19.

Making the announcement on social media on Tuesday, she also appealed her followers to wear masks and take all precautions.

Singh tested positive for the disease on December 22 and wrote on social media that she had isolated herself. “I’d like to inform everyone that I have tested positive for COVID-19. I  have quarantined myself. I am feeling fine and will rest up well so that I can be back at shoot soon. Request everyone who met me to kindly get yourself tested. Thank you and please stay safe,” she said.

During a question and answer session on Instagram when she was recovering, she said that she was taking all the necessary precautions to limit the spread of the disease. “I am quarantined in my room. Not stepping out, doing my breathing exercises, eating healthy, taking my vitamins and hoping that I will be negative soon,” the actor said.


Right before she tested positive, the De De Pyaar De actor was on vacation with her family in the Maldives.

Singh was last seen in the 2019 film Marjaavaan. She is currently shooting for Mayday, which will be directed by Ajay Devgn and will feature Amitabh Bachchan. The action-drama film will see Singh play the role of a pilot. Her other projects include Attack, Indian 2, Sardar ka Grandson, Ayalaan and an untitled cross-border love story opposite Arjun Kapoor.


In the past few days, a number of actors have tested positive for Covid-19. Actors Ram Charan and Varun Tej put out statements on their respective social media handles on Tuesday announcing that they had tested positive for the virus. Ram Charan is filming for SS Rajamouli‘s RRR.

Earlier this month, actors Varun Dhawan and Neetu Singh Kapoor, who were in Chandigarh shooting for their upcoming film Jug Jugg Jeeyo, had tested positive along with director Raj Mehta. The actors got back to work and wrapped up another schedule on Tuesday.

The shoot of Rajinikanth‘s upcoming film Annatthe was also stalled after four members from the crew tested positive.
