Neetu Kapoor, meanwhile, has tested postive for coronavirus.
A source close to the Kapoor family said, “She tested positive for COVID-19. Ranbir has organised everything in Mumbai so that she gets proper hospitalisation and isolation.”
Before commencing the shoot of Jug Jugg Jeeyo, all the actors and crew members of Jug Jugg Jeeyo underwent the swab test for coronavirus. Neetu Kapoor had recently shared a photo on Instagram and mentioned that they all were “Covid tested and safe”.
Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor play Varun Dhawan’s parents in Jug Jugg Jeeyo. While Kiara Advani essays the role of Varun’s wife, the film also marks the Bollywood debut of YouTuber Prajakta Koli.
Neetu Kapoor is returning to the silver screen with Jug Jugg Jeeyo after seven years. She was last seen in Ranbir Kapoor’s Besharam.
