After his COVID-19 test result came positive, Kapoor informed the society authorities, who in turn apprised the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) about the case.

The BMC is now in the process of getting Sahu into a quarantine centre.

"Myself, my children, and the other staff at home are all fine and none of us are showing any symptoms. In fact we haven't left our home since the lockdown started," Kapoor said in the statement.

The producer expressed his gratitude to the Maharashtra government and the BMC for their swift response for their house help.

"We shall be diligently following the instructions and advice given to us by BMC and their medical team. We are sure that Charan would soon recover and be back at home with us," he added.

Earlier this month, the office building of music label T-Series was sealed by the BMC after one caretaker tested positive for COVID-19 .

In April, a member of jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali's in-house staff had tested positive for COVID-19 .

According to the health ministry, death toll due to coronavirus rises to 3,163; cases climb to 1,01,139.
