After yet another Covid outbreak in Bollywood, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) sanitised Indian actor Kareena Kapoor Khan’s apartment complex and has sealed the building after the actor tested positive for coronavirus. BMC said three buildings have been sealed as per protocols.
Bollywood ace director Karan Johar, who hosted the infamous party, also had his apartment complex sanitised. However, now in a social media post, the filmmaker has confirmed that he and his family have tested negative for Covid.
His note read, “My family and I and everyone at home have done their RT-PCR tests and with the grace of god we are all negative. In fact, I tested twice just to be safe and [I] am negative. I truly appreciate the grandest efforts of the BMC to ensure the safety of our city. Salute to them.”
He then went on to call out Indian media and clarified he didn’t have a K3G themed ‘party’. “To some members of the media, I would like to clarify that an 8 people intimate gathering is not a ‘party.’ And my home which we maintain strict protocols in is certainly no ‘hotspot’ of Covid.”
He added, “All of us are responsible and masked at all times and no one would treat this pandemic lightly. My request to certain members of the media is to exercise some restraint in their extreme reportage without the assessment of facts! Lots of love and safety to all. Karan Johar.”
Earlier, Kareena’s spokesperson clarified that she was at an intimate dinner where she might have caught the virus.
The spokesperson said, “Kareena has been extremely responsible throughout the lockdown period. She has been careful every time she’s stepped out. Unfortunately, this time she and Amrita Arora contracted Covid at an intimate dinner where a few friends had gathered to catch up. It wasn’t a big party as being reported. Among that group, there was one person who seemed unwell and was coughing, and who eventually passed it on. This person should have been responsible enough to not attend the dinner and put others at risk.”
Kareena took to Instagram to share her health update. The Jab We Met star said in a statement, “I have tested positive for Covid. I immediately isolated myself while following all medical protocols. I request anyone who has come in contact with me to please get tested. My family and staff are also double vaccinated. They are currently not showing any symptoms. Thankfully, I am feeling ok and hope to be up and about soon.”
