A day after it was reported that Gauahar Khan was booked for allegedly flouting the COVID-19 rules, the actress’ team has issued an official statement and dismissed the news reports as a mere “speculation”. Multiple reports stated that the BMC filed an FIR against Gauahar after she stepped out of her house to shoot despite testing positive for the novel coronavirus. However, the FIR registered by the BMC didn’t mention the name of the actor. The BMC also tweeted that it filed an FIR against “a popular Bollywood actor” for flouting coronavirus guidelines on testing positive.
“For everyone sending their best wishes and concern for Gauahar Khan, here’s the latest report. She has tested negative in multiple reports,” the statement, which also had a photocopy of a medical report, from Gauahar’s team read.
Gauahar recently lost her father, Zafar Ahmed Khan, due to age-related illness. In terms of work, Gauahar was last seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s web series Tandav, also starring Saif Ali Khan, Sunil Grover, Dimple Kapadia, and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub.
“She’s a law-abiding citizen and complying with all the norms of BMC. This is to appeal for all the speculation to be put to an end. Gauahar Khan is cooperating with everything that the BMC requires. Requesting all the media houses to not indulge in speculation and respect Gauahar’s emotionally lowest low time as she’s just lost her father 10 days ago and she’s going through everything from her by the BMC. So with folded hands, we want Gauahar’s time to herself, respectfully, and let her heart heal in this mourning time,” the team further stated.
