Alia Bhatt, who had attended a party at Karan Johar’s house and later left for Delhi to promote her film Brahmastra, was rumoured to have flouted COVID-19 norms, but the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has since clarified that she had acted in accordance with rules, and there’s no question of a case being filed against her.

Actress Kareena Kapoor and three others who had also attended the party had subsequently tested positive for COVID-19 and were asked to isolate themselves at home.  Kareena’s bungalow was sealed. However, no one else in her house, including her children and home help, have tested positive.

 

Since Alia, along with Karan Johar, Malaika Arora and Arjun Kapoor were also at the party, it was speculated that they would also have to undergo home quarantine. However, Alia and her beau and Brahmastra co-star Ranbir Kapoor left for Delhi to promote the film.

BMC health committee chairperson Rajul Patel had asked the Deputy Municipal Commissioner of Public Health Department to file an FIR against Alia for violating home isolation norms, if found warranted. “They are role models and they should lead by example and not flout norms,” Patel had said. 

 

However, the Public Health Department found on enquiry that Alia had furnished an RTPCR report stating that she was negative for the Novel Coronavirus before travelling to Delhi, and as such, no action was warranted against her. “She was not told to be under home quarantine and that is why she was able to travel,” a health department official clarified.

Meanwhile, Karan Johar and Malaika Arora Khan were spotted at the launch of a new night spot in Mumbai on Thursday night. We assume that they too had tested negative and were not required to be under home quarantine.
