Veteran singer and composer Bappi Lahiri is the latest Bollywood celebrity to have tested positive for the Covid-19. Confirming to the news, his spokesperson said that he has admitted to Mumbai’s Breach Candy hospital and is being kept under observation.

According to a report by Spotboye, the spokesperson was quoted as saying—“Despite utmost precautions, unfortunately, Mr Bappi Lahiri has tested positive for Covid-19. He is under very good and expert care at the Breach Candy Hospital. Bappi dada’s family requests all those who came in contact with him in the recent past should get themselves tested as a precautionary measure.”

The spokesperson further added—“He seeks blessings and wishes of his fans, friends and everyone from India and abroad. On behalf of Bappi Da, we passing his message to all his well-wishers and fans to stay healthy, stay blessed“.

Earlier in March, the veteran music composer had shared on his social media that he had registered for the Covid-19 vaccine. It is not clear, however, if he took the first dose of the vaccine. His Instagram post read—”I’ve just pre-registered for my #COVID19Vaccine – what are you waiting for! As soon as I found out that us over 60’s and those aged between 45-59 with a specified co-morbidity are now able to get our jab booked in, I felt a sense of relief that the end to this pandemic is in sight. It was quick & simple to register at (link in bio) and I urge all of my friends in this age bracket to do the same!

We wish for Bappi Da’s speedy recovery.
