Later in the day, Alia also shared a motivational message on Instagram, “We grow through what we go through. #TheGoodWord”.

On Monday evening, Ranbir’s uncle Randhir Kapoor had said that while Ranbir is unwell, he was not clear about the nature of his illness. When contacted him, the veteran actor had said that Neetu Kapoor will share the details.

In December last year, when she was shooting for Jugg Jugg Jeeyo in Chandigarh, Neetu had tested positive for COVID-19. She had shared, “Earlier this week I tested positive for Covid-19. All safety measures are being followed and I am thankful to the authorities for all their help and quick response. I am in self-quarantine, taking medication on my doctor’s advice and feeling better. I am so grateful for all your love and support! Please stay safe, wear a mask, keep safe distance.”
