The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Monday filed a police case against a Bollywood actor for flouting COVID-19 guidelines. Though the BMC release did not disclose the name the actor, reports said the case was related to Tandav actor Gauahar Khan.
Later, The Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) issued a non-cooperation notice for two months against Gauahar for allegedly violating the COVID-19 rules.
Now, a report says that Gauahar will have to remain in institutional quarantine till at least March 24. “On the 13th or 14th day, she will be made to undergo a RT-PCR test and only if that is negative, she can walk out free,” a BMC official said.
The 37-year-old actor, however, had denied being COVID-19 positive in a statement while requesting the media to not speculate. “For everyone sending their best wishes and concern for Gauahar Khan, here’s the latest report. She’s tested negative in multiple reports. She’s a law abiding citizen and complying with all the norms of BMC,” the actor’s team said.
“This is to appeal for all the speculation to be put to an end. Gauahar Khan is cooperating with everything that the BMC requires,” it further said.
