Shahid Kapoor, who was recently involved in the controversy relating to his gymnasium in Bombay being opened for him and his wife, Mira, despite the state government’s orders to shut down all gyms in Bombay, Thane, Pune and Nagpur, has gone away to Beas in Punjab. Kapoor has taken his family along with him.
It is well-known that Shahid Kapoor is an avid follower of Radhasoami Satsang Beas. In fact, he even owns a house in the Dera premises. Although the Dera is shut due to restrictions on places of worship which attract huge crowds as a precautionary measure to fight the coronavirus, people who own houses in the premises are allowed to stay in them. Before Shahid left Bombay for Beas, he was shooting in Chandigarh for Jersey. Shooting had to be halted midway on 14th March due to the coronavirus scare. The unit returned to Bombay the same day
In a related incident, it may be mentioned that just today (25th March), the Dera Beas has offered the Punjab health minister all its Satsang centres across the state for converting them into isolation wards.
