Guwahati: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Saturday sealed the residential building of legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar as a precautionary measure amid COVID-19 pandemic.

Although the singer and her family are safe, they released a statement that read, “Please do not react to any hearsay on the health of our family members, especially. We, as a building society in unison, are taking utmost caution, care, and co-operating to ensure the well-being and safety of all the senior citizens especially, and all the other residing members as well. By God's grace and the wishes of so many, the family is safe.”

The statement added that they have been inundated by calls all evening to inquire whether Prabhukunj is sealed. BMC sealed the building society as a precautionary measure as many senior citizens have made their home there. The statement further read, “Even our usual festive Ganesha celebrations were a simple familial one this time, to cooperate and support social distancing.”

Meanwhile, the singer shared a picture of Ganesh Chaturthi festivities at her home on her Instagram handle.

Apart from Mangeshkar's building even Bachchan’s properties were sealed by the BMC after Amitabh, Abhisekh, Aishwarya, and Aaradhya tested positive for COVID-19 in July. Even Rekha’s house was also sealed after the actor’s security staff was tested COVID-19 positive. Additionally, even producers Karan Johar and Boney Kapoor and actor Amir Khan also announced that their staff members had tested positive.
