Telugu filmmaker SS Rajamouli and his family have tested negative for Covid-19. The filmmaker tweeted to confirm the news on Wednesday.

"Completed 2 weeks of quarantine! No symptoms. Tested just for the sake of it... It is negative for all of us," wrote the Baahubali director on his verified Twitter account, @ssrajamouli.

Rajamouli also shared that he has to wait for three more weeks to donate plasma.

"Doctor said we need to wait 3 weeks from now to see if we've developed enough antibodies for plasma donation," he added.

On July 29, the filmmaker had shared the news about the coronavirus diagnosis.

"My family members and I developed a slight fever few days ago. It subsided by itself but we got tested nevertheless. The result has shown a mild Covid-19 positive today. We have home quarantined as prescribed by the doctors. All of us are feeling better with no symptoms but are following all precautions and instructions. Just waiting to develop antibodies so that we can donate our plasma," he had shared.

Rajamouli is currently working on another big-ticket film, RRR, which stars Ram Charan, Jr. NTR along with Bollywood stars Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn. The period drama is about a fictitious tale based on the life of Telugu freedom fighters, Alluri Seetharama Raju and Komaram Bheem.
