Karan Johar had thrown a party on 8 December to celebrate 20 years of his film Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham. The party was well-attended; guests included Kareena Kapoor, Amrita Arora, Karisma Kapoor, Seema Khan, Maheep Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Malika Arora and Alia Bhatt.
A source informs us that it all began after Karan’s return from Delhi from the shooting of the film Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, which stars Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi, among others. “It’s not clear who was infected first and who spread it,” the source adds.
However, before that, Kareena and Amrita were at a party at Sonam’s sister Rhea Kapoor’s house, with others including Malaika, Karisma and Kareena’s manager Poonam Damania present. After Kareena Kapoor tested positive, Amrita Arora followed. Soon, everyone in touch with them was asked to be tested. Now apparently Maheep Kapoor and Seema Khan have also tested positive.
Malaika Arora had already tested positive last year as did Alia Bhatt and Malaika’s boyfriend Arjun Kapoor. It’s not known, however, if they’ve done their tests again.
Kareena, who put out a statement after her house was sealed by the municipal authorities, has confirmed that no one else in her house has tested positive, including her children Taimur and Jehangir.
“I have tested positive for Covid. I immediately isolated myself while following all medical protocols. I request anyone who has come in contact with me to please get tested. My family and staff are also double vaccinated. They are currently not showing any symptoms. Thankfully, I am feeling ok and hope to be up and about soon [sic],” read her statement.
