Recently one of my friends inserted his micro SD card (memory card) and played a song to test my cell phone and removed it. But afterwards I came to know that one of his files was infected by virus.

Does this mean that my cell phone has been infected too?

Possibly, but not likely. Viruses are written to run on a specific platform and very rarely target anything outside that ie from a PC running windows to an ios, android or windows phone. Basically like how software makers have to create different versions for operating sytems, hardware types etc. For peace of mind, install an antivirus (assuming your phone can run one)
