He said the actor and the family members were tested for COVID-19 but their reports came negative. However, he added that they have been placed under mandatory 14-day home quarantine.
Nawazuddin’s brother Ayazuddin Siddiqui said the actor came to his ancestral place for Eid with his family. He made it clear that the actor will not meet anyone outside the family in the wake of the situation arising out of coronavirus.
