Chandigarh, December 4
Varun Dhawan and Neetu Kapoor tested COVID-19 positive in Chandigarh as per reports.
The two were shooting for Raj Mehta’s ‘Jug Jugg Jeeyo’. The film also stars Anil Kapoor and Kiara Advani. A confirmation on their test results is pending.
The shooting of the film has now been halted until the actors are healthy.
According to a report by Filmfare, a source close to the film project told the entertainment portal that Neetu and Varun have been tested positive for the novel coronavirus and that the shoot has been put on hold.
The stars are yet to confirm the same.
Just a few weeks back, a video of Neetu Kapoor taking the COVID-19 test on the sets had gone viral.
However, now, if the report by Filmfare is anything to go by, then the leading cast along with the director has been apparently infected with COVID-19.
The film’s cast also includes Kiara Advani, Maniesh Paul and Prajakta Koli. While Maniesh recently joined them in Chandigarh, Kiara and Prajakta had jetted off along with Neetu, Varun and Anil from the private airport in Mumbai last month.
The film is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
