It was earlier reported that five people had tested positive in Karan Tacker’s residential complex in Mumbai’s Khar West area. As a preventive step, the actor has shifted base with his family to a villa in Lonavala’s Amby Valley region as he doesn’t want to take a chance with their health, especially that of his parents who are old and as such, at higher risk of contracting the coronavirus pandemic. The family’s new abode is located about 120 km away from Mumbai.
Opening up on his decision to India TV, Karan Tacker said, “We are staying at Amby Valley. The reason behind moving out of the city was that there have been a lot of cases being reported in Mumbai. My building had a few cases and my parents are getting older. I am constantly worried about their health. Fortunately, none of us have contracted anything yet, but keeping all of this in mind we thought it’s a good idea if we could step away from the city, just to be safe.”
There’s a flipside though to where Karan and his family have shifted, with the lack of medical facilities causing him concern. Highlighting the issues, he added, “The pitfall of moving out from the city is the lack of medical facilities. But I am with my parents and, fortunately, Lonavala and Amby Valley do have medical facilities. Maybe, not as good as Bombay but we are all healthy individuals and, in the worst-case scenario, god forbid, we can all just travel back to Mumbai to a hospital.”
Speaking about returning to Mumbai, the Special Ops actor elaborated, “I hope to be back ASAP because I do miss Mumbai, home and work. All of us do. As soon as the pandemic comes to some sort of (a stage of) settling down that would be the best scenario to return to Mumbai. As far as shoots are concerned, if I do end up going on shoots, I will probably quarantine myself after a shoot because I don’t intend to put my parents at risk. If my parents are here I can quarantine myself in my Mumbai house.”
Well, we hope that Karan and his family stay safe.
