Previously, a month ago the actor’s father, who is also an iconic Telugu actor and veteran, Chiranjeevi tweeted saying that he has also been tested positive for the COVID-19 vaccine. However, he later on explained to media sources that his test was positive due to a faulty PCR-kit which showed his tests to be positive when he was actually negative.
During his announcement, this is what he had to say on twitter regarding his faulty test and how doctors precluded that he might not have the virus before:
