rekhaMUMBAI: The legendary actor Rekha has reportedly refused to get her coronavirus test done and has also denied BMC officials from entering her house, thus, obstructing them from sanitising it.
After the veteran actor’s security guard tested positive for coronavirus recently, healthcare officials wished to tests all the other members including the actress and other staff members but sources state that Rekha refused to do it, Bollywood Life reported.
According to reports, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) reached Rekha’s home in Mumbai where her manager Farzana gave them her phone number and asked them to call back before carrying out their required procedures. BollywoodLife quoted a report saying, “Take the number, call me and then we shall talk,” Farzana said.
Meanwhile, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has advised veteran actress Rekha to get herself tested after her security guard, two house helps were found to be corona virus positive. However, Rekha is yet to take the test and has told the authority that she has not faced any health issues so far.

Rekha is currently home-quarantined. She owns as plush bungalow – Sea Springs – in Mumbai’s Bandra. Her home has been sealed and sanitised. The corona virus cases were detected at her place over the weekend. The BMC has put a board outside the premises declaring the place as a containment area.

BMC said that she cannot be forced to take the test as she isn’t at high risk. Hence, she can get herself tested whenever she wants. Over the weekend, several corona virus-related cases were detected from the entertainment industry.
On Saturday night, megastar Amitabh Bachchan and his actor son Abhishek Bachchan were admitted to Mumbai’s Nanavati Hospital after testing positive for coronavirus. Hours later, Abhishek’s actress wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and their daughter Aaradhya were also found to be COVID-19 positive. Both Aishwarya and Aaradhya have quarantined themselves at home.
Anupam Kher’s mother, brother, sister-in-law and niece have also contracted the infection. On the other hand, TV star Parth Samthaan, too, said he was tested positive for corona virus.
