Tamannaah Bhatia, who had tested positive for Covid-19, has been discharged from the hospital and has gone into self-isolation. The 30-year-old actor, who was shooting for a web-series under the direction of Praveen Sattaru in Hyderabad, developed a fever and took the Covid-19 test last week.

On Monday, Tamannaah updated her fans and well-wishers about her health through Twitter. She wrote, "Although my team and I have been very disciplined on set, I, unfortunately, succumbed to a mild fever last week. After undertaking the mandatory tests, I was diagnosed as COVID-19 positive. I admitted myself into a private hospital in Hyderabad to mitigate adverse health outcomes and after being under the care of expert medical professionals, I am now being discharged."

Further, Tamannaah is optimistic of recovering fully. "For the present, I will be self-isolating as advised. A big virtual hug to everyone for their love, concern and positivity. Stay safe, stay healthy, stay well," the Baahubali actor wrote on Twitter.

Earlier in August, Tamannaah's parents — Santosh Bhatia and Rajani Bhatia — had tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

On the work front, Tamannaah will next be seen in That is Mahalakshmi and Seetimaarr. She is also scheduled to reprise Tabu's role in the Telugu remake of the Hindi black comedy Andhadhun.
