Indian singer and music composer Bappi Lahiri has tested positive for the Covid-19, his spokesperson has confirmed.

The musician has been admitted to Breach Candy hospital in Mumbai and is being kept under observation, reports the Hidustan Times.

“Despite utmost precautions, unfortunately, Mr Bappi Lahiri has tested positive for Covid-19. He is under very good and expert care at the Breach Candy Hospital. Bappi dada’s family requests all those who came in contact with him in the recent past should get themselves tested as a precautionary measure," a Spotboye report quoted Bappi's spokesperson as saying.

“He seeks blessings and wishes of his fans, friends and everyone from India and abroad. On behalf of Bappi Da, we passing his message to all his well-wishers and fans to stay healthy, stay blessed," the spokesperson added.

Last month, Bappi Lahiri shared a post on Instagram stating that he had pre-registered for the Covid-19 vaccine. It is not clear, however, if he took the first shot of the vaccine.

"As soon as I found out that us over 60's and those aged between 45-59 with a specified co-morbidity are now able to get our jab booked in, I felt a sense of relief that the end to this pandemic is in sight," read an excerpt from his post.

Bappi Lahiri is known for delivering popular songs in several films of the late 1970s-80s like Chalte Chalte, Disco Dancer, and Sharaabi. His last Bollywood song titled Bhankas was for the 2020 film Baaghi 3.

Apart from Bappi Lahiri, many other Indian celebrities have also tested positive for the coronavirus. Actors Aamir Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Kartik Aaryan, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Rohit Saraf among many others shared their respective Covid-19 diagnoses last month. 

Superstar Amitabh Bachchan, his son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had also contracted the virus last year.
