The actress also tested negative for the Omicron variant, reported news agency ANI. Mumbai's civic body Brihanmumbai Corporation or BMC said that Kareena's genome sequencing report has returned a negative result for Omicron, ANI reported.

After the dinner was criticised by some as a super-spreader event, host Karan Johar denied in a statement that his home was a "hotspot for COVID," explaining that there had been only eight guests and that it had not been a party. He had tested negative twice, KJo said. Kareena also issued a statement in which she denied that she had been irresponsible by attending the dinner. Without naming names, Kareena said that a guest at the dinner had seemed unwell and was coughing; unconfirmed reports suggested that she meant Seema Khan - Seema was the first of the four women at the dinner to have tested positive for COVID, according to BMC, ANI reported.

Kareena Kapoor is keeping her spirits up by sharing snippets of her life in isolation on her Instagram. Her COVID survival kit consists of "pyjamas, lipstick and a pout":
