Karan Johar’s birthday celebration has turned a bit sour as two members of his household staff have tested positive for COVID-19. The news was shared by the director-producer himself in an official statement.
“I’d like to inform you that two members of our household staff have tested positive for COVID-19. As soon as the symptoms were detected, they were put under quarantine in a section of our building. The BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) was informed immediately, and the building has been fumigated and sterilised by them as per the norms,” said Johar.
He assured that he and the rest of the family and staff members aren’t showing any symptoms. “We have all taken the swab test this morning and have tested negative, but will remain in self isolation for the next 14 days for the safety of everyone around us. We stand by our commitment to safeguard everyone and have ensured that all measures prescribed by the authorities have been strictly adhered to,” added Johar.
The head of Dharma Productions also said that he will provide best treatment and care to the two staff members who have tested positive. “These are difficult times but by staying in our homes and taking the right precautions, there is no doubt in my mind that we can defeat this virus. Stay home everyone and stay safe,” he said.
Last week, three members from producer Boney Kapoor's staff also tested positive for COVID-19. He, his family, and the rest of the staff tested negative.
