Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar on Saturday announced that he has tested positive for Covid-19 for the second time. 

Following the diagnosis, the 54-year-old actor has cancelled his visit to the India Pavilion at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival 2022.

"Was really looking forward to rooting for our cinema at the India Pavilion at #Cannes2022, but have sadly tested positive for Covid. Will rest it out. Loads of best wishes to you and your entire team, @ianuragthakur. Will really miss being there," Akshay wrote on Twitter. 

The actor was supposed to walk the red carpet on the opening day of the 75th Cannes Film Festival as part of the Indian contingent along with Shekhar Kapur, Pooja Hegde and AR Rahman. 

Akshay will next be seen in Yash Raj Films' period drama "Prithviraj". 

The superstar had previously tested COVID-19 positive last year in April.
