After news of Kareena Kapoor Khan and her close friend Amrita Arora testing positive for COVID-19 surfaced on Monday, the actor’s official spokesman issued a statement.
It was previously claimed that the two had lately attended multiple parties and hence may be super-spreaders of the fatal illness. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has issued an RT-PCR test to anybody who has come into touch with them.
Kareena’s spokeswoman has now disclosed that she got the illness at a recent private dinner in an official statement.
Kareena’s spokeswoman has now disclosed that she got the illness at a recent private dinner in an official statement. The spokesperson said, “Kareena has been extremely responsive 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.”
The two had just spent over a week together at Anil Kapoor’s daughter Rhea Kapoor’s Mumbai home for a delightful get-together. “As soon as she tested positive she has quarantined herself and is following the necessary precautions and protocols to deal with the condition. It is not fair to put the blame on her and say that she has been irresponsible and let her guards down. Kareena is a responsible citizen and also has the concern and care for safeguarding her family,” added the spokesperson.
Meanwhile, Kareena is gearing up for the premiere of her film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha,’ which is a Hindi remake of the Academy Award-winning ‘Forrest Gump.’ In the Hindi version, Aamir Khan plays the lead role.
