Arjun Kapoor, Sister Anshula, Cousin Rhea Kapoor Test Positive for Covid-19

Actor Arjun Kapoor and his sister Anshula Kapoor have tested positive for Covid-19. On Wednesday, Kapoor’s cousin Rhea Kapoor took to her Instagram stories and informed fans that she too has tested positive along with her husband, filmmaker Karan Boolani.


“Yes, I’m positive for Covid in spite of being super careful. But this is the nature of the pandemic,” she wrote. “My husband and I are isolating and taking all prescribed medications and precautions. Everything tastes bad except chocolate, my head hurts, and I’m still grateful that I got it the way I did and we will be fine in no time. To everyone reaching out to make sure we are okay, we are not too bad, thanks for checking. We love you,” she added.

Arjun Kapoor, however, has not issued an official statement yet.

According to a report in the Times of India, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has sealed his Mumbai residence after the actor tested positive along with his sister. The apartment is currently being sanitised by the BMC. Another TOI report states that filmmaker Boney Kapoor has tested negative. It also adds that everyone in the family is doing well and only showing mild symptoms.

Arjun Kapoor had earlier tested positive for the virus in September 2020 but recovered without complications. Recently, his aunt Maheep Kapoor and cousin Shanaya Kapoor had tested positive for Covid-19.


Along with them, Kareena Kapoor Khan had tested positive too. However, she has recovered since and the actor had even attended a party at her sister Karishma Kapoor’s house, which was also attended by Arjun Kapoor along with Malaika Arora Khan.

Arjun Kapoor will be next seen in Kuttey, which is written by Aasmaan and Vishal Bhardwaj. The actor also has Lady Killer with filmmaker Ajay Bahl in his line-up.

Meanwhile, Mumbai recorded 1,333 cases on Tuesday. This is the highest single-day surge in the city since May 26, when 1,352 cases were registered.
