Earlier, Varun Dhawan, who was also shooting for Jug Jugg Jeeyo, tested positive for coronavirus. A few reports suggested Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor also contracted the virus. But Anil released a statement saying he has tested negative for COVID-19. Sources close to the Kapoor family said Neetu’s test results came out positive.
The shooting of Jug Jugg Jeeyo has been suspended until the actors recover from the virus.
