Earlier in March, the veteran music composer shared on his social media that he had registered for the Covid-19 vaccine. It is not clear, however, if he took the first dose of the vaccine. His Instagram post stated- ”I’ve just pre-registered for my #COVID19Vaccine – what are you waiting for! 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. It was quick & simple to register at Cowin.gov.in (link in bio) and I urge all of my friends in this age bracket to do the same!”
Wishing him a speedy recovery!
