It’s been almost a year since the world was introduced to this novel virus and it has already affected millions of people. Many have lost their lives to it as well. The data is heartbreaking but people have continued behaving in an ignorant way. This has resulted in many countries facing a second wave which is proving to be deadlier than the first one.

The virus, as it turns out, doesn’t discriminate and has affected people of all age groups. In fact, it has affected some of our beloved actors as well. Here are 5 Bollywood stars that have tested positive for it:
