Since its inception in late 2019, the Covid-19 pandemic has affected millions of people all over the world. Actors have a higher risk of infection since the nature of their employment requires them to be without a mask for long periods of time. Vaccination has, thankfully, reduced the pandemic’s global impact. However, reaching the endemic stage will take some time.

Meanwhile, Emraan Hashmi revealed last month that he had been stricken with the deadly disease. Last month, while filming Tiger 3 with Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in Vienna, Austria, the actor tested positive for the virus. While promoting his new horror film Dybbuk, Emraan remarked in an interview with an entertainment portal that the experience was not enjoyable. He claimed, however, that he had only been sick for four days. He further stated that he believes he contracted the virus in Mumbai or on the travel from Mumbai to Vienna. This is due to the fact that he began to have symptoms two days after arriving in the Austrian city.

Interestingly, Emraan Hashmi refused to disclose that he had travelled to Vienna for the filming of Tiger 3 during the interview. He joked that he was in Vienna and Turkey, where the film had already been shot, for shopping.

A source said, “Emraan probably has already taken two doses of the Covishield vaccine. That would have come in handy while entering Austria and that also explains why he recovered in just four days. Also, he must have got quarantined immediately or may have not mingled with the unit members of Tiger 3. Hence, it is possible that no one from the Tiger 3 team got the infection from him.”
