Aamir Khan, in a statement to the media, confirmed that some of his staff members have tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The actor said that those who tested positive have been quarantined.
In his statement, Aamir Khan said, “Hello everyone, this is to inform you that some of my staff have tested positive. They were immediately quarantined, and BMC officials were very prompt and efficient in taking them to a medical facility.”
Thanking Municipal Corporation of Mumbai, he said, “I would like to thank the BMC for taking such good care of them, and for fumigating and sterilising the entire society (sic).”
Along with his staff, Aamir Khan and his family were also tested for the virus and were found negative. They are waiting for the actor’s mother’s result. He said, “The rest of us have all been tested and found negative. Right now I am taking my mother to get her tested. She is the last person in the loop. Please pray that she is negative. I would, once again, like to thank the BMC for the prompt, professional and caring manner in which they helped us (sic).”
“And a big thank you to Kokilaben Hospital, and the doctors, nurses and staff there. They were very caring and professional with the testing process (sic),” added Aamir.
Earlier, three members of Boney Kapoor’s home staff had also tested positive for the novel coronavirus. They have recovered now.
Aamir Khan was to resume shooting for Laal Singh Chaddha from July 15. But since his staff members have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, it seems it will take more time before the team resumes shoot. Laal Singh Chaddha also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan.
