He adds, “The rest of us in the family and the staff are all safe and display no symptoms. We have all taken the swab test this morning and have tested negative, but will remain in self isolation for the next 14 days for the safety of everyone around us. We standby our commitment to safeguard everyone and have ensured that all the measures prescribed by the authorities have been strictly adhered to. We will also ensure that the best of treatment and care is provided to them during their illness, and we’re sure that they will be fighting fit soon!

These are difficult times but by staying in our homes and taking the right precautions there is no doubt in my mind that we can defeat this virus, Stay home everyone and stay safe.”

Karan Johar stays in Bandra, Mumbai with his mother and two children Yash and Roohi Johar. The filmmaker celebrated his 48th birthday on 25 May.
