Veteran actress Rekha refuses to get her tests done for Covid-19?
A few days back, reports of Rekha‘s security guard testing positive for Coronavirus had surfaced. It was also reported that few domestic staff members of the veteran actress have also tested positive for the deadly Coronavirus. Now several media reports state that Rekha has refused to get her Coronavirus test done. Apparently she has also denied BMC officials from entering her house. Read on to know the deets.
After the security guard of the actress tested positive for Covid-19, BMC officials wanted to test her as well as her remaining staff members. Now according to a report in India TV, when BMC staffs contacted Rekha’s manager Farhana, she apparently gave them a number and asked them to call before starting any procedures.
The same report further states that when Chief Medical Officer of BMC H West ward Sanjay Phude called Farzana once again, she said that Rekha is doing perfectly fine. Reportedly the manager even said that the actress doesn’t want to get tested for Covid-19 as she has not come in anyone’s contact.

Rekha’s security guard tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) moved him to the Bandra jumbo facility soon after and also conducted tests of all the other staff members employed at her bungalow. While Rekha’s bungalow has not been sealed, the portion of the compound which housed the staff has been sealed. Earlier, Aaamir Khan Karan Johar and Janhvi Kapoor’s staff members had also tested positive for Covid-19 during the lockdown. The latest hat we hear is that Rekha too is going to undergo a test under BMC supervision. #rekha #viralbhayani @viralbhayani
Furthermore, when BMC sent a sanitization team to the actress’ house no one answered the door. And hence the team was left with no choice but to sanitize the home from just from outside. Earlier as per a report in Hindustan Times, Rekha did not want BMC to test her. The veteran actress said she will get her own test done and submit the report to the concerned authorities. The same report also stated that not the entire bungalow but only a premise where her staff used to stay has been sealed by BMC.
The ‘Silsila’ actress is yet to issue an official statement about the same. We hope she does that soon so that all these rumours surrounding her refusal to get tested by BMC is clarified.
Until then you guys stay tuned to this space for more updates on this story.
