The statement follows reports which suggested Varun Dhawan, Neetu Kapoor, Anil Kapoor and director Raj Mehta contracted coronavirus on the sets of Jug Jugg Jeeyo in Chandigarh. While Anil took to Twitter on December 4 to refute the reports, saying he has tested negative for COVID-19, sources close to the Kapoor family said Neetu’s test results came out positive.

All the actors and the crew were tested for coronavirus before they started work on Jug Jugg Jeeyo. Neetu Kapoor had shared a photo before beginning the shoot and had mentioned they all were “Covid tested and safe.”
