As per a close friend of the actor who spoke to Bombay Times, "Randeep complained of acute pain on Tuesday night, and since he wasn’t feeling better, he left for the hospital yesterday morning.

His father, who is a doctor, is with him at the hospital, and he is the best person to talk about Randeep’s health. They will talk about it once they have all the reports. Randeep doesn’t want people to speculate."

The daily also got in touch with a source from the hospital who revealed, "Randeep was admitted in the morning. He underwent a couple of tests, including the COVID-19 test.
