Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya, speaking to Indian Express in an interview, said that his son Dhruv Bhattacharya tested positive for coronavirus. Dhruv, who is a Mumbai-based restaurateur, showed no symptoms of the virus but had to get the test done because of his international travel plans, said Abhijeet. "Dhruv was planning to travel abroad, and since there is a rule to get tested for coronavirus before travelling, he went for a voluntary test. He is asymptomatic. He has just a little cold and cough." Dhruv Bhattacharya is currently in home quarantine, the singer told the publication: "He has quarantined himself at home and is taking all the precautions. There is nothing to worry."
