It appears that the Coronavirus wave is in the mood to spare no one, including our celebrities. Only recently, the film industry resumed working after the government imposed certain relaxations on the lockdown. Among many other projects, Karan Johar’s Jug Jugg Jeeyo, starring Anil Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani and Prajakta Koli, in the lead, too, went on floors recently. And while the makers seemed to have taken all the precautions on the film’s set, it appears that the leading trio of this comedy-drama couldn’t escape the virus.
As per Filmfare, Varun Dhawan, Neetu Kapoor and Anil Kapoor, along with director Raj Mehta, have tested positive for COVID-19. As a consequence of the same, the film’s shooting has been put on hold until, of course, all of them recover completely.
The shooting for Jug Jugg Jeeyo resumed only recently with Neetu Kapoor often sharing glimpses of the same from the sets. The veteran actress has also undergone a COVID-19 test, a video of which had gone viral on social media.
Jug Jugg Jeeyo is being produced under Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and is touted to be a family drama. It will make it to the big screens in 2021.
