Kangana Ranaut has tested positive for COVID-19, after which she said that the coronavirus is nothing more than a “small-time flu which got too much press” and that she will “demolish it.”

Ranaut, in a social media update, shared that she got herself tested after experiencing some discomfort.

“I was feeling tired and weak with [a] slight burning sensation in my eyes for past few days, was hoping to go to Himachal so got my test done yesterday and today the result came I am COVID positive,” said Kangana.


She continued: “I have quarantined myself, I had no idea this virus is having a party in my body, now that I know I will demolish it, people please don’t give anything any power over you, if you are scared it will scare you more. Come let’s destroy this COVID-19. It is nothing but a small-time flu which got too much press and [is] now psyching few people.”

Meanwhile, earlier this week, Kangana’s Twitter account was suspended, after she had posted a series of tweets that were found to be in violation of the platform’s hate speech and abusive behaviour policies. She vowed to continue voicing her opinions through other means, and has since made Instagram her primary mouthpiece.
