Randhir Kapoor in ICU after testing positive for COVID-19

Bollywood actor Randhir Kapoor, the father of Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor, has hospitalised as he contracted with coronavirus.  

According to Indian media, the 74-year-old got admitted to a hospital and is now in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). Earlier, Kapoor assured the fans that her father is not having any breathing issues and does not need a bed in the ICU.

However, the doctors were persistent to shift him to get more COVID-related tests done. “The hospital is taking very good care of me and I thank Tina Ambani. Everything is under control. They are going all out for me. The doctors are around all the time,” Kapoor said informing everyone about his health.

“I have no clue how I got COVID-19. I am surprised. Let me also tell you that my entire staff of five members, too, has tested positive, and I have got them hospitalised with me in the same hospital,” he said.

Wife Babita and their daughters Karisma and Kareena Kapoor have all tested negative for the disease. Sadly, Randhir recently lost his brothers, Rishi and Rajiv Kapoor. While Rishi died last year after a two-year-long battle with cancer, Rajiv died earlier this year of a cardiac arrest.
