Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui was among the many people staying away from their families during the coronavirus lockdown. With strict travel restrictions, the ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ fame actor couldn’t travel to his native place earlier. However, he made sure that he is together with his family at his ancestral place to celebrate Eid this month.
According to News18, Nawazuddin and his family recently travelled to their hometown in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh from Mumbai. Reports indicate that he had procured all the required permissions from government authorities before travelling amid the nationwide lockdown. And as per the lockdown norms, he has been quarantined for 14 days at his house in Budhana.
Nawazuddin reached his ancestral place on May 11 along with his mother, brother and sister-in-law. They also underwent medical screening and have tested negative for COVID-19. Hindustan Times reports that they underwent medical screenings at 25 points during the journey.
Kushalpal Singh, Station House Officer (SHO), Budhana police circle, said that the health officials had visited the actor’s home and ordered them to stay in home quarantine for 14 days.
Nothing hurts more than staying away from family especially during festivals. We are glad Nawazuddin didn’t test positive for coronavirus and will be able to celebrate the festival and spend the rest of his quarantine time with his entire family.
