Taking to Facebook, the famed singer stated that he has been hospitalised in an isolation ward and despite the doctors recommending him home quarantine, he has moved himself to an isolation ward to keep his family safe. The singer revealed a few symptoms that he has been showing and said, "Last two to three days I have been having a little discomfort. Discomfort means little chest congestion, which for a singer is nonsense. Phlegm forming and then cold and on and off fever. These three things, otherwise no problem. But I didn't want to take it easy, so I went to the hospital and checked. So they said it was just a mild, mild, mild, very mild positive of corona."
