Singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya’s son, Dhruv, has examined optimistic for the coronavirus. Dhruv, a restaurateur, was planning on going overseas and had himself examined as a precautionary measure.
Abhijeet instructed the Indian Express, “Dhruv was planning to travel abroad, and since there is a rule to get tested for coronavirus before travelling, he went for a voluntary test. He is asymptomatic. He has just a little cold and cough. He has quarantined himself at home and is taking all the precautions. There is nothing to worry.”
The singer himself is okay. “I am shooting in Kolkata,” he said, “and the rule is that only if you have tested negative for coronavirus, can you get on sets. So I had tested negative, and I continue to shoot.”

Abhijeet, who gained recognition within the 90s, after performing a number of playback songs picturised on Shah Rukh Khan, not too long ago provided his two cents on the continued debate round nepotism and favouritism within the movie business. He instructed Hindustan Times, “It wasn’t like this before in the ‘90s. Back then, it was even unthinkable. It did happen that one song went from one singer to another but it was authentically, not like this. Things were not so dirty. A film director and music composer used to decide which singer they want, not some company or actor.”
