·1-min read

Actor Anil Kapoor on Friday tweeted from his account to put an end to rumours that he has tested Covid-19 positive.

"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," Anil tweeted on Friday.

His tweet follows reports that Varun Dhawan and Neetu Kapoor, who are currently shooting with Anil in Chandigarh, have both tested positive, as has director Raj Mehta of the upcoming film Jug Jugg Jeeyo.

Varun, Neetu and Anil, as well as actress Kiara Advani, are part of Mehta's unit at the Chandigarh outdoor of the film.

Following the news that Varun and Neetu have tested positive, it was confirmed that Anil and Kiara have tested negative. However, rumour has spread in sections of social media that Anil has also tested Covid positive.

Denying unconfirmed reports that her father Anil has tested positive, Sonam Kapoor has subsequently 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."

Shoot of Jug Jugg Jeeyo has reportedly been put on hold for now.
