Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the government has advised the citizens to avoid going to crowdy places and have also asked gyms, swimming pools and educational institutes to stay closed up to 31 March 2020.
Several states have imposed such shutdowns to prevent the virus outbreak, similarly, the Maharashtra government had also issued a directive to all gyms to remain closed.
But, as per reports by some English daily, despite government’s advisories, actor Shahid Kapoor and his wife Mira Rajput were reported to be visiting an upscale gym in Mumbai, AntiGravity Club, on Sunday evening.
The news further claims that the gym opened at 5:30 pm exclusively for the couple.
The English daily also shared a picture that showed the couple working out in the VIP area and exiting the gym from another gate when they spotted a journalist.
Now, the owner of AntiGravity Club, Yudhishthir Jaising, has given clarity that Shahid had visited to get some equipment from the gym.
He claims Shahid Kapoor to be his close friend and termed the visit at gym as a friendly one and not to work out. He said, “He has been shooting in Chandigarh and had asked me to get some equipment after he sustained an injury (tendonitis). I was showing him the right way to use the equipment. In any case, we work out and train together at each other’s houses.”
“It was only Shahid, Mira and me… just friends chilling on a Sunday evening,” he further claimed.
Well, now it is a bit difficult to comprehend the truth but it must be said that the Coronavirus pandemic has suspended many daily routines.
And it is important for everyone to follow government guidelines seriously and responsibly.
