- Madhavan announced his COVID-19 diagnosis in a light-hearted way
- "Farhan HAS to follow Rancho," he wrote in his tweet
- Fans wished him speedy recovery in the comments section
Actor R Madhavan, on Thursday, announced that he has tested positive for coronavirus but unlike most other celebs his announcement had a sweet light-hearted twist to it. The actor who has worked with Aamir Khan in the hit film 3 Idiots, used the film's reference to announce his COVID-19 diagnosis. Aamir Khan had also tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday. In the film, Aamir and Madhavan played the roles of two best friends Rancho and Farhan, studying in an engineering college. They had named their college dean as Virus in the film. In his tweet, Madhavan used that reference and wrote: "Farhan HAS to follow Rancho and Virus has always been after us BUT this time he bloody caught up. BUT-ALL IS WELL and the Covid will be in the Well soon. Though this is one place we don't want Raju in. Thank you for all the love. I am recuperating well."

Along with the tweet, Madhavan also shared a poster of the film featuring him and Aamir. Sharman Joshi was also one of the lead actors of the film and has played the role of Raju. Madhavan deliberately cropped out Sharman Joshi from the poster of the film as he had implied in his tweet that "this is one place we don't want Raju in."
Fans of the actor wished him speedy recovery in the comments section of the post, while many others lauded his way of putting the information. "Take care Maddy. Wishing you a speedy recovery," a fan wrote in the comments section of the post.
