I Did Not Break Lockdown, Rumours Are Baseless Says Vicky Kaushal
Actor Vicky Kaushal on Thursday slammed reports that he was caught by the city police after he allegedly broke the lockdown and stepped out of his house.
There were rumours that the “Uri: The Surgical Strike” star left his house to meet another Bollywood actor but was pulled over by the cops and fined.
Tagging Mumbai Police, Vicky took to Twitter and urged people not to pay attention to hearsay.
“There are baseless rumours suggesting that I broke the lockdown and got pulled up by the cops. I’ve not stepped out of my house since the lockdown started. I request people not to heed the rumours. @MumbaiPolice,” the actor wrote.
Since March 25, India has been under lockdown with around 1.3 billion people asked to stay home in view of the coronavirus outbreak, which has infected over 21,000 people and claimed 686 lives in the country.
Vicky Kaushal’s building was recently partially sealed after an 11-year-old resident tested positive for the novel coronavirus. The actor has now shared a video which shows the residents welcoming a young girl and a woman in the compound with a huge round of applause. It seems the two have returned after winning their battle against the virus.
The video shows the two entering the building compound with their suitcases and look surprised to see people clapping for them. Sharing the video, Vicky wrote, “Like a ray of sunshine on a gloomy day, our little warrior comes back Home! #WelcomeBackChamp.”
Meanwhile on the work front, Kaushal will next portray the freedom fighter Udham Singh, who assassinated Michael O’Dwyer, in a biopic directed by Shoojit Sircar, after which he will star as the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb in Takht, a historical drama directed by Johar. He has also committed to Ashwatthama and a biopic of the army officer Sam Manekshaw.
