Taking to her Instagram Stories, Rhea wrote, “Yes I am positive for COVID in spite of being super careful. But this is the nature of the pandemic. Not sure why my or anyone’s private health information is news or gossip. This information should only be for the government and medical bodies so that they can do their job and not on gossip sites. It’s invasive and weird.”
Rhea Kapoor and her husband, Karan Boolani have tested positive for Covid-19. They too, are under quarantine. Arjun’s girlfriend, Malaika Arora will get tested as well.
According to reports, Arjun’s sister Anshula Kapoor, who turned a year older today, has also contracted the virus.
