A source close to Karan Johar told the media portal, “Karan has an ageing mother and two little children at home. So far his loved ones have escaped the virus. But who knows about the future? He won’t risk it at all.”
Recently, when Kareena Kapoor Khan and Amrita Arora were tested COVID positive after attending an intimate dinner at Karan’s house, many media houses went on to tag his place as the COVID hotspot.
Although the filmmaker didn’t respond at the time, yesterday when Karan Johar’s tested negative, the producer sent out a statement through his Instagram story which reads, “My family and I and everyone at home have done their RTPCR tests and with the grace of god we are all negative! In fact, I tested twice just to be safe and am negative. I truly appreciate the grandest efforts of the BMC to ensure the safety of our city. Salute to them.”
While taking a dig at the media, Karan wrote, “To some members of the media, I would like (to) clarify that an eight people intimate gathering is not a ‘party’ and my home, which we maintain strict protocols in, is certainly no ‘hotspot’ of Covid. All of us are responsible and masked at all times and no one would treat this pandemic lightly. My request to certain members of the media is to exercise some restraint in their extreme reportage without the assessment of facts! Lots of love and safety to all.”
