Shimla, September 9
Equipped with a Covid-negative report, actress Kangana Ranaut on Wednesday left her native Bhambla village in Mandi to reach Chandigarh to be able to catch a flight to Mumbai.
Kangana had on Tuesday arrived at the village from Manali, where she had been residing for the past few months since the lockdown.
After her Covid sample taken at Manali was inconclusive, a fresh sample collected when she reached her village was tested at Lal Bahadur Shastri Medical College, Ner Chowk, Mandi.
Devender Sharma, Chief Medical Officer, said Kangana’s report was negative.
The actress left for Chandigarh around 7 am. A major controversy has erupted with Shiv Sena leaders and activists threatening her with dire consequences in case she arrived in Mumbai.
Not wanting to take any chances of being denied entry into Mumbai for want of a Covid-negative report, Kangana was insistent that she must get her test done before leaving.
The Centre has provided her CRPF security while the Himachal police too have deputed its personnel to ensure safety of the actress, who has been vociferous in airing her views on Bollywood and nepotism in the film industry following actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
