After Ranbir Kapoor, actor Manoj Bajpayee has tested positive for Coronavirus. The Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari actor, who was shooting for his OTT film Despatch, is currently under self-quarantine at home. He tested positive after his Despatch director Kanu Behl got infected with the virus. His team has confirmed the same in an official statement adding that the film's shooting has been stopped for now.

The statement reads, “Manoj Bajpayee has tested Covid positive after his director was infected with it. The shoot has stopped and will resume in a couple of months. Manoj Bajpayee is on medication and recovering well. He is in self-quarantine at home and following all precautions”.
