The report notes while the actor is undergoing a treatment for the disease, the makers of “Sooper Se Ooper” are forced to continue the promotional activities without the comedian.

The 34-year-old  Dehradun native is the second Bollywood star to contract the potentially serious viral infection. Two weeks ago,  28-year-old “Gunday” star, Ranveer Singh was also diagnosed with dengue.
