KBC: After testing Covid positive, Farah says ‘everyone present in the set tested negative’

Farah Khan and Deepika Padukone shot an episode of segment ‘Shandar Shukravar’ and post episode Farah Khan is tested Covid possitive. KBC set later reveals that everyone else present is tested negative.

Director- Filmmaker Farah Khan, who will soon be seen in KBC’s coming Friday’s episode with Deepika Padukone, revealed through her Instagram post that the cast and crew of KBC has been tested negative for COVID-19. Farah Khan also recently shared that she is infected with the virus and reassured people that the KBC’s special episode was shot a long time ago before she contracted the virus.

Farah sharing a post on her social media handle thanked Deepika for being with her in the fun episode and boasted about her picture clicked by Amitabh Bachchan himself, “You know it’s a great day when your selfie is clicked by the legend himself – Amitabh Bachchan. Thank you my darling Deepika Padukone for this Teacher’s Day special episode of KBC (will air next Friday),”

Writing an additional note, Farah said,  “PS – this was shot before I tested positive and thankfully everyone on this set has tested negative post shoot.” Mr. Bachchan contacted the virus last year and was in self quarantine for a while.

Farah Khan also shared that she has completed the prescribed course of two vaccines and wondered whether, “If this happened coz I didn’t put my ‘kaala teeka‘… Despite being double vaccinated, and working with mostly double vaxxed people, I’ve still managed to test positive for Covid.”

Owing to herself getting old and forgetting things, Farah reminded people that, “I’ve already informed everyone I came in contact with, to get tested. However, if I have forgotten someone (because of old age and fading memory) please test yourself.” She added: “Hoping to recover soon.”


Apart from KBC, Farah is shooting for several other shows, presently she is on the judge panel of Zee Comedy Show and also going to appear in coming eppisode of Super Dancer: Chapter 4 with her student and friend Geeta Kapoor and Shilpa Shetty and Anurag Basu. Farah has three kids and is married to Sirish Kunder.
