"Yes, this is true. Arjun will be donating his plasma on the 45th day since he tested positive.

The source further added that the Panipat actor will have to go to a hospital for the plasma donation and the hospital authorities are currently planning the procedure. "Arjun will have to go to a city hospital to donate his plasma. We are currently working with him closely to lock the date and follow all procedures. It is really nice of him to do this. We want more and more Indians who have battled and won over coronavirus to also do the same. We need to beat this virus and the support of all Indians is key to us winning," the source added. 

Arjun, who is currently shooting for Kaashvie Nair's cross-border rom-com with Rakul Preet Singh, John Abraham and Aditi Rao Hydari, issued a statement on testing positive. "It is my duty to inform all of you that I have tested positive for coronavirus. I’m feeling ok and I’m asymptomatic. I have isolated myself at home under the advice of doctors and authorities, and will be under home quarantine. I thank you all in advance for your support and I will keep you updated about my health in days to come. These are extraordinary and unprecedented times and I have faith that all of humanity will overcome this virus. Much love, Arjun," he wrote in his note on Instagram.
