Yesterday, putting the rumours to rest, Anil tweeted, “In the interest of putting any rumours to rest, I have tested negative for COVID-19. Thank You all for your concern and good wishes”. Sonam Kapoor also slammed media for false reporting as she tweeted, “False reporting is dangerous. I’m sitting in london and I see incorrect information peddled by some parts of the media before I can even speak to my father. Please be responsible in your reportage.”

‘Jug Jugg Jeeyo’s shoot is halted now and as per a report in Mumbai Mirror, the team has to take a break of 10-14 days now. They quoted a source saying, “Varun, Neetu and Raj will take a repeat test and once everyone tests negative and recovers, the shoot will resume, hopefully, by mid-December.”
