Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor and Amrita Arora tested positive for COVID-19
It looks like Kareena Kapoor Khan and her best friend Amrita Arora are the latest Bollywood celebrities to test positive for COVID-19.
The news was confirmed by Kapoor Khan’s spokesperson who made a statement to entertainment portal Pinkvilla. âKareena has been extremely responsible throughout the lockdown period. She was careful every time she went out. Sadly, this time, she and Amrita Arora contracted COVID during an intimate dinner party where a few friends gathered to make up for it. It was not a big party as has been reported. Among that group was one person who seemed sick and had a cough, and eventually passed it on. This person should have been responsible enough not to attend the dinner and put others in danger. “
The spokesperson added: âAs soon as she tested positive, she self-quarantined and follows the necessary precautions and protocols to deal with the disease. It is not fair to blame her and say that she has been irresponsible and let her guard down. Kareena is a responsible citizen and also cares and cares about protecting her family. “
