Randhir Kapoor is the latest Bollywood celebrity to have tested positive for Covid-19. The veteran actor has been admitted to a hospital in Mumbai, following his diagnosis. When ETimes reached out to the hospital authorities, Dr Santosh Shetty CEO and Executive Director of the hospital, confirmed, “Veteran actor Shri Randhir Kapoor is admitted to Kokilaben Ambani Hospital Mumbai for Covid-19 Treatment last night. His condition remains stable”. More details and a health update about the 74-year-old actor are awaited.
The actor was recently in the news when the Bombay High Court sought an undertaking from actor and his sister Rima Jain that they would take reasonable measures to locate and submit the divorce decree of their late brother Rajiv who had passed away earlier this year.
In March, Ranbir Kapoor had tested positive for Covid-19 and his uncle Randhir had informed that the actor had recovered well. “Ranbir is absolutely fine now. He is alright. I have met him,” Randhir Kapoor had told PTI, while also adding he was unaware when his nephew tested negative.
Last year in September, Randhir Kapoor had joined social media, despite being a private person. His daughters Karisma and Kareena insisted that he should mark his presence on Instagram. “I am not here (on Instagram) to make statements. I like my peace. I am happy in my space. My Insta will be just fun,” the veteran actor had then told ETimes.
