Gauahar had tested positive for covid-19 and was asked to self quarantine. When the officials went to check on her, she was absent from her house as she went out for a shoot.
A BMC official said, “When we went to her home in Andheri (W), she did not open the door. We then learnt that she instead went out for film shooting. We then approached the Oshiwara police station.”
The actress had lost her father earlier this month and since then she had been posting pictures on social media to share her memories. Last year Khan married choreographer and a social media star Zaid Darbar.
Few days back, Bollywood celebrities Siddhant Chaturvedi, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Ranbir Kapoor, Tara Sutaria, Manoj Bajpayee and Ashish Vidyarthi also tested positive for the virus.
