Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt has tested positive for the coronavirus, reports Pinkvilla. Her rumoured boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor had tested positive for the covid-19 virus a few days ago. However, there is no official confirmation from the actor yet.

Ranbir has tested positive for Covid-19. He is on medication and recovering well. He is in self quarantine at home and following all precautions.”
