Anil Kapoor hit headlines today when reports suggested that he had tested positive for the novel Coronavirus. Refuting the speculating, he shared in a statement on social media, “In the interest of putting any rumours to rest, I have tested negative for COVID-19. Thank you all for your concern and good wishes.”
He was shooting for ‘Jug Jugg Jeeyo’ in Chandigarh with Neetu Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani and Prajakta Koli. And a source close to the film had informed Filmfare that Neetu Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and director Raj Mehta have tested positive for the virus and that the shooting has been put on hold.
Back in November, Neetu Kapoor had shared a picture from the airport as the team headed for their first outdoor shoot. “My first flight, in these scary times !! Nervousss for this journey !! While Kapoor Sahab, you aren’t here holding my hand, I know you are with me .. #RnR thank you for encouraging me to do this.. #jugjuggjeeyo P.S. – We are all Covid tested and safe, hence removed mask while taking picture,” the veteran actress had captioned the post.
