Akshay Kumar has tested positive for Covid-19 for the second time. He was supposed to make his debut at the Cannes Film Festival 2022. Unfortunately, he will now have to skip his visit due to Covid-19 diagnosis. The Prithviraj actor shared the heartbreaking news with his fans and followers on Twitter.
“Was really looking forward to rooting for our cinema at the India Pavilion at #Cannes2022, but have sadly tested positive for Covid. Will rest it out. Loads of best wishes to you and your entire team, @ianuragthakur. Will really miss being there,” Akshay tweeted.
It was reported that Akshay will walk the Cannes 2022 red carpet alongside Oscar winning music composer AR Rahman, R Madhavan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Nayanthara, Tamannaah Bhatia, Shekhar Kapur, CBFC Chief Prasoon Joshi, Ricky Kej, and others.
The Khiladi Kumar will be next seen in YRF’s upcoming period film Prithviraj, directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, who is best known for directing the television epic Chanakya and the critically acclaimed film Pinjar. The film will see Akshay essaying the role of the legendary warrior Prithviraj Chauhan who fought valiantly to protect India from the invader Muhammad of Ghor. Former Miss World Manushi Chhillar plays the role of Prithviraj’s beloved Princess Sanyogita in her debut film. It is set to release on June 3 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
