Bollywood actor and model Malaika Arora's residential building in Mumbai has been sealed and turned into a containment zone, after a resident tested positive for the coronavirus.

Malaika has been spending quality time at home with her son. In a recent Instagram post, the 46-year-old penned, "I know you've been wondering where I had disappeared but I think we all needed some time to ourselves. Locked down at home has made us closer to ourselves, physically and mentally. But I think a lot of us have embraced it (sic)."
Earlier in April, Vicky Kaushal's housing complex in Andheri was sealed after an 11-year-old girl from the building tested positive for the deadly virus. Similarly, other popular celebrities whose buildings in Mumbai were sealed include TV actors Shivin Narang and Ankita Lokhande, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actors Sonalika Joshi and Tanmay Vekaria, ABCD 2 actress Seema Pandey, and Aahana Kumra.

Meanwhile, in the film fraternity, celebrities who contracted the coronavirus include singer Kanika Kapoor, producer Karim Morani and his daughters, Zoa and Shaza, and veteran actor Kiran Kumar. They have all since recovered.
