While the entire world is battling the Coronavirus Pandemic, the government has asked people to not step out of their homes unless necessary. With schools, theaters and gym being closed, Shahid Kapoor was recently spotted with wifey Mira Rajput sweating it out in an upscale gym on Sunday evening.
While a lot of reports say that Shahid was working out in the VIP area and Mira in the general area, the couple was quick to exit the moment they spotted the paparazzi. Now the owner of the gym, Yudhishthir Jaising has finally opened up on what exactly was happening and if and why his gym was open despite a shutdown order from Maharastra CM Uddhav Thackeray.
Jaising has been quoted by Hindustan Times saying, “He (Shahid) has been shooting in Chandigarh and had asked me to get some equipment after he sustained an injury (tendonitis). I was showing him the right way to use the equipment. In any case, we work out and train together at each other’s houses. It was only Shahid, Mira and me… just friends chilling on a Sunday evening.”
Meanwhile, Shahid Kapoor had recently taken to his social media handle to announce the suspension of the shoot of his upcoming outing, Jersey. Shahid’s Tweet read, “At a time like this it is our social responsibility to do everything in our capacity to curb the spread of this virus. Team #Jersey is suspending shoot so as to enable all unit members to be with their families and in the safety of their homes. Be responsible. Stay safe.”
