Did Alia Bhatt Breach COVID Rules for Brahmastra Promo? Officials Says No

    The Mumbai civic body reveals that Alia Bhatt did not breach COVID-safety standards by flying to New Delhi. Alia, who was at a dinner last week wherein four guests tested positive for the virus, flew to New Delhi on Tuesday to promote her film Brahmastra, prompting backlash on social media.

    Alia Bhatt got a negative COVID test report, according to a top BMC official, and was not in violation of quarantine restrictions. “If she travelled with a negative COVID-19 report, no action is justified,” Mumbai Civic Body officials informed a news agency.

    Alia Bhatt, who overcame COVID infection earlier this year, was spotted leaving out of Mumbai’s Kalina airport on Tuesday; she returned on Thursday:

    A dinner held at filmmaker Karan Johar’s Mumbai home on December 8 has been criticised as a super-spreader after four guests tested positive for COVID – Kareena Kapoor, Amrita Arora, and The Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives co-stars Seema Khan and Maheep Kapoor. A member of Kareena’s domestic staff tested positive later as did Maheep’s daughter Shanaya Kapoor.

    Karan Johar tested negative twice and denied that his house was a “hotspot for COVID” in a statement, explaining that there were only eight guests at the dinner. Kareena Kapoor also released a statement denying that she had been irresponsible by attending the dinner; one guest had been coughing and should not have attended, her statement said.

    Reports also suggest this person was Seema Khan who was the first of the four dinner guests to test positive, according to the BMC. Kareena’s sister Karisma Kapoor was at the dinner as well and so were Amrita’s sister Malaika Arora and Malaika’s boyfriend Arjun Kapoor, both of whom recovered from the virus this year.

    Alia Bhatt, co-star Ranbir Kapoor and director Ayan Mukerji were in New Delhi to release the motion poster of their trilogy Brahmastra, part one of which will release in September 2022. Alia has also been travelling to film her new project Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, co-starring Ranveer Kapoor and directed by Karan Johar.
