Mumbai: Actor Anil Kapoor on Friday tweeted to put an end to the rumour that he had tested positive for COVID-19.
“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,” the actor tweeted.
Anil’s tweet follows reports that Varun Dhawan and Neetu Kapoor, who is currently shooting with Anil Kapoor in Chandigarh, had both tested positive, as has director Raj Mehta of the upcoming film “Jug Jugg Jeeyo”, according to a news agency.
Following the news that Varun Dhawan and Neetu Kapoor had tested positive, it was confirmed that Anil Kapoor and Kiara had tested negative. However, rumour had spread in sections of social media that Anil has also tested COVID positive.
Denying unconfirmed reports that her father Anil has tested positive, Sonam Kapoor tweeted, “False reporting is dangerous. I’m sitting in London and I see incorrect information peddled by some parts of the media before I can even speak to my father. Please be responsible in your reportage.”
