After Kareena Kapoor Khan, Amrita Arora, Seema Khan and Maheep Kapoor tested positive for Covid-19 after attending a dinner with filmmakers Karan Johar‘s residence on December 8, he has announced that he and his family members have been tested negative for the virus. Karan took to Instagram and clarified that he did not hold a ‘party’ but only hosted an ‘intimate gathering’ for eight people and has followed all protocols.
His note read: “My family and I and everyone at home have done their RTPCR test, and by the grace of God we are all negative. In fact, I tested twice for safety’s sake and am negative. I really appreciate BMC’s greatest efforts for to ensure the safety of our city. Greetings to them. To some members of the media I would like to clarify that an intimate gathering of 8 people is not a ‘party’. And my home, in which we maintain strict protocols, is certainly not something “hotspot” by covid. “
The note read further: “We are all responsible and masked at all times and no one would treat this pandemic lightly. My request to certain members of the media is to show some restraint in their extreme reportage without assessing the facts! Lots of love and security to all. Karan Johar. “
On Tuesday, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) cleaned Kareena’s apartment complex and sealed the building. BMC said three buildings have been sealed according to protocols. Karan’s apartment complex was also cleaned.
Kareena’s spokeswoman clarified that she was at an intimate dinner where she could have caught the virus. The spokesman said: “Kareena has been extremely responsible throughout the shutdown period. She has been careful every time she has stepped out. Unfortunately she and Amrita Arora got Covid this time at an intimate dinner where a couple of friends were gathered to catch up. It was not a big party as announced. Among that group was a person who seemed uncomfortable and coughed and who eventually passed it on. This person should have been responsible enough not to attend the dinner and endanger others. . “
Kareena took to Instagram to share her health update on Monday. Others for the same dinner who are said to be in danger include Kareena Kapoor’s sister and actress Karisma Kapoor and actress Malaika Arora, Amrita Arora’s sister.
