After several Bollywood celebrities tested positive for Covid-19, there was speculation that actor Alia Bhatt, who travelled from Mumbai to Delhi, may have breached quarantine rules. Now, a senior Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) official has said that she has not violated any quarantine rules if she had a negative test report while travelling.
Alia got herself tested for the virus before leaving Mumbai – she was negative, PTI reported. On Thursday, a BMC official said that no quarantine rules were flouted if Alia had a negative test report while flying to Delhi for the promotion of her film Brahmastra,”No action is warranted if she has travelled with a negative COVID-19 report,” the official said.
Earlier this week, actors Kareena Kapoor Khan and Amrita Arora tested positive for COVID-19 after attending a dinner at producer-director Karan Johar’s residence.
On Monday, Kareena shared her Covid-19 diagnosis and said that she hoped to be back on her feet soon. Taking to Instagram Stories, she wrote, “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.”
