New Delhi:

Actor Arjun Kapoor tested positive for the coronavirus last month - he has recovered since then and has also resumed his work schedule. In an interview with HT, the 35-year-old actor opened up about the time he found out about his COVID-19 diagnosis. Talking about his first reaction, Arjun told HT that he was "upset" that his shooting schedule was going to go for a toss: "I was confused, felt a varied degree of emotion. I was upset as I had to realign my life and I was looking forward to being on set. I had just shot for a few days and did the test to restart the second schedule so I felt disappointed that because of me the shoot will get cancelled. I then realised that I've to now be careful with my family, so there was a bit of concern, anger, irritation, but I also knew I've to deal with it practically."

Arjun Kapoor revealed he was COVID-19 positive in a statement on September 6, which was a Sunday. Referring to the day, Arjun said he was restless thinking about the repercussions of having the coronavirus but a chat with his doctor helped him pacify: "This one Sunday (September 6) just blew out of proportion for me. It took me six-eight hours to accept the situation before I could speak with the doctor. I calmed down when the doctor told me I was mostly asymptomatic. I felt mild symptoms coming in over the course so I guess it panned out alright."

A month later, on October 7, Arjun Kapoor said he's completely recovered from COVID-19 and tested negative. Arjun attached a note of gratitude for COVID-19 frontline workers in his statement.
