‘Virus has always been after us’: R Madhavan’s ‘3 Idiots’ reference after testing COVID positive

Mumbai: R. Madhavan on Thursday took to social media to inform that he has tested positive for Covid-19. However, the actor assured fans that he has been recuperating well.

The actor took to Twitter to share the news in a quirky manner. Madhavan posted a photograph of himself and Aamir Khan from the poster of their 2009 comedy film “3 Idiots” where he played a character called Farhan while Aamir was Rancho.

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has also tested positive for the virus and the news came out just a day before. Referring to that, Madhavan wrote: “Farhan HAS to follow Rancho and Virus has always been after us BUT this time he bloody caught up.”

Madhavan added: “BUT-ALL IS WELL and the Covid will be in the Well soon. Though this is one place we don’t want Raju in. Thank you for all the love. I am recuperating well.”

Raju was a character played by Sharman Joshi in “3 Idiots”, who is in good health, that’s why Madhavan cropped his picture out and wrote “this is one place we don’t want Raju in”.

Commenting on Madhavan’s tweet, fans expressed their concern and shared prayers for his speedy recovery.

The actor was last seen in Maara, which released earlier this year on Amazon Prime Video. He is also working on ‘Rocketry’ where he plays the lead role of scientist Nambi Narayanan. Madhavan is also writing, directing and producing the film.
