The coronavirus pandemic has wrecked havoc in the lives of people. The horrifying virus has brought the world to a standstill and many nations are trying their best to combat this virus. While the government has taken up strict measures to battle the deadly virus, everyone is working hard to avoid transmission of the novel coronavirus by keeping their surroundings clean and maintain social distance.
However, the neighbors of yesteryear actor Anita Raaj and her husband Sunil Hingorani have been accused of entertaining guests at their Pali Hill home on Monday despite the lockdown.
Soon the posh Bandra address was swarmed with cops at the actor's doorstep following the neighbors’ complaint.
According to a report in Mid Day, the society has barred entry for outsiders. And when the couple failed to follow the safety protocols, the local cops were informed.
The report quoted a source saying, "Ever since the lockdown was announced, the society has barred entry for outsiders. So, the neighbors were surprised at the steady stream of visitors at her flat and expressed concern about the threat it posed to their health. On Monday, when it was noticed that they were entertaining guests, the local cops were informed."
The arrival of cops was expected to improve the situation, however, took a turn for the worse after the cops left the premises.
Raaj and her husband reportedly got into an argument with the security guard in the lobby. "They wanted to know who had complained about them to the cops. At one point, they asked the guard if he had informed the neighbors about the visitors," adds the source.
In an interaction with mid-day, Raaj offered an alternate version of events.
Since my husband is a doctor, one of his friends had come home for a medical emergency. His wife came with him for assistance. My husband couldn't refuse him on humanitarian grounds. After checking the situation, the cops apologized for the false complaint that was lodged with them and left immediately.- Anita Raaj
Raaj further asserted that she would not compromise the safety of others. "I won't behave irrationally by hosting a party in the current scenario."
For the unaware, Anita Raaj is known for films like Prem Geet (1981) and Naukar Biwi Ka (1983), and currently seen on television in Chhoti Sardaarni.
