"I wanted to give you an update. I had to go for Roadies and before that, I had to test for COVID-19. Two of my tests were negative, but the result which came today was positive. BMC has asked me to self-isolate. So I am home quarantining," Raftaar shared in a video posted on his Instagram Story.

The rapper said he is awaiting the next test as he believes that his COVID-19 diagnosis could have been an "error".

"I am waiting for the next test to happen because I feel it's a technical error because I'm fit and fine. I don't feel that I have any illness.

"I can't feel any symptoms. But it's my duty to isolate myself. I'm fit and I will update you about my health. Don't worry," Raftaar said.

The rapper is known for songs like 'Dhaakad', 'Tamanche Pe Disco', and 'Bandook Meri Laila'.

On Tuesday, Mumbai's COVID-19 tally rose to 1,58,756, with the death toll reaching 7,939.
