Kapoor further added that his family is under self-quarantine for the next 14 days.
“All of us will be in self-quarantine for the next 14 days. We shall be diligently following the instructions and advice given to us by the BMC as well as their medical team. We are thankful to the Government of Maharashtra and the BMC for their swift response,” the ‘Mr India’ producer said in the statement.
