Earlier, staff members of Boney Kapoor and Karan Johar had also tested positive for the novel coronavirus. They have recovered now.
Aamir Khan was shooting for Laal Singh Chaddha when the production work was stalled due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. He was to resume the shoot of the film on July 15, but as his staff tested positive for the virus, it seems it will take more time before the team resumes shoot. Laal Singh Chaddha also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan.
