Tamil Director Arun Vaidyanathan, who is known for having made thrillers such as ‘Achamundu Achamundu’ and Mohanlal’s ‘Peruchazli’, has tested positive for the Omicron variant of Covid-19.
The director, who is known to travel frequently to the US, took to social media to share the news.
He said: “I went to Kumbh Mela and shot for 28 days with 160 ppl on sets … went to Varanasi and Bodh Gaya … but once I came to the US, I tested positive. Covid is like a masala film – no logic!”
Vaidyanathan went on to add that he had tested positive for the Omicron variant of Covid-19. In his usual tongue-in-cheek way, he said: “I have a new visitor at home and I think his name is Omicron. He has been kind and not demanding much as of now.”
He concluded on a reassuring note: “People who stayed in touch with me through WhatsApp, Messenger and other social media … Relax. God bless everyone.”
