Mumbai, Dec 5: Veteran star Neetu Kapoor and actor Varun Dhawan on Friday tested positive for Covid-19 in Chandigarh.

The two Bollywood actors, along with Anil Kapoor and Kiara Advani, were shooting for their upcoming movie Jug Jugg Jeeyo in the city.

According to a source close to the family, Neetu, 62, is now flying back to Mumbai after her actor-son Ranbir Kapoor made necessary arrangements.

"She tested positive for Covid-19 today. So, Ranbir organised the air ambulance for her, to get her back. If she's here, she will get proper hospitalisation and isolation. Otherwise, she was alone in Chandigarh," the source said.

Dhawan and the film's director Raj Mehta, who has also contracted Covid-19, have decided to quarantine in Chandigarh.

"Varun and even the director have tested positive, though both of them have decided to stay there," the source added.

Earlier in the day, Anil Kapoor took to Twitter and denied rumours that he had also tested positive for Covid-19.

"In the interest of putting any rumours to rest, I have tested negative for Covid-19. Thank you all for your concern and good wishes," Anil Kapoor tweeted.

A source close to the film told PTI that Advani had also tested negative for Covid-19.

The cast and crew had undergone a test before starting the film last month.

In November, Neetu Kapoor had posted on Instagram that the cast is "Covid-19 tested and safe" ahead of the filming start.

Jug Jugg Jeeyo, backed by filmmaker Karan Johar, marks the return of Neetu Kapoor to the big screen.

The veteran actor had last featured in 2013's Besharam, which also starred Ranbir Kapoor and her late husband Rishi Kapoor.

Mumbai, Jan 7: After getting accolades for helping migrants during the COVID-19 lockdown, Bollywood actor Sonu Sood and the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation have locked horns over his premises in Juhu.

The BMC has lodged a police complaint against Sood accusing him of 'illegally' converting his six-storied home in Shakti Sagar Building in Juhu without getting proper permissions.

Following a complaint by a social activist, the BMC filed its complaint with the Juhu Police Station invoking the Maharashtra Region & Town Planning Act. The police are now probing the matter before proceeding further.

On his part, Sood has claimed that he has done nothing illegal, secured all the necessary permissions and was only awaiting a nod from the Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority (MCZMA).

Back in June 2018, Sood had submitted an application to the BMC's K-West Ward Building Proposal Department, proposing to convert his residential premises into a lodging-cum-boarding facility.

he BMC returned the proposal in September 2018 directing him to comply with all the norms and submit an amended proposal, which has reportedly not been done so far.

The opposition Bharatiya Janata Party slammed the BMC move alleging it was an act of 'vendetta' on the lines of the action taken against actress Kangana Ranaut.

BJP spokesperson Ram Kadam questioned how when the same premises were turned into a quarantine facility last year by the BMC and there was nothing wrong , it now suddenly found the premises to be illegal, and asked the civic body to 'beware' of targeting a famous personality.

AK-Vs-AK-Movie-Download.jpg

New Delhi, Jan 5: Actor Riteish Deshmukh lauded Vikramaditya Motwane's 'AK vs AK' and termed the Netflix based film "a phenomenal experience".

Deshmukh took to Twitter to share a poster of the movie, which features Anurag Kashyap and Anil Kapoor in lead roles.
"Mind has been blown!!! #AKvsAK is a phenomenal experience - @VikramMotwane take a bow my friend," tweeted Deshmukh.

He then went on to heap praise on Kashyap, Kapoor, and his actor son Harshvardhan Kapoor who has a cameo in the film.

"@anuragkashyap72 how good are you, @AnilKapoor Sir, only you could do this, you are pure gold in this film but @HarshKapoor_has outdone your entire performance in one scene," the 'Housefull' actor's tweet further read.

While Kapoor essays the role of a yesteryear actor, Kashyap plays the role of a disgraced film director in the film.

'AK vs AK,' revolves around the story of a movie star and a film director who get into a public spat, following which the director retaliates by kidnapping the actor's daughter and films the search for her in real-time.

The Netflix India Original film was released on the platform on December 24, which also happens to be Anil Kapoor's birthday.
