After slamming Priyanka Chopra for attending Isha Ambani’s Holi bash, Arnab Goswami pulls up Mira Rajput and Shahid Kapoor for gym fiasco


Hours after Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor courted controversy for hiding her travel history despite testing positive for coronavirus, Arnab Goswami decided to name and shame Shahid Kapoor and his wife Mira Rajput for their ‘irresponsible’ act. Goswami’s public outbursts targeting Shahid and Mira came days after the celebrity couple was accused of using a gym in Bandra despite a government ban.

Goswami started his debate with his usual rant as he said, “The prime minister yesterday spoke of sanyam and sankalp. That’s restraint and resolve when it comes to the national battle against coronavirus. Given the way in which the news has broken through the day of a Bollywood singer, who partied with hundreds of people and has now tested corona positive, I guess another word could have been added to restraint and resolve, another R. That’s responsibility.”

He continued, “Bollywood must understand that responsibility goes far beyond putting out that occasional tweet…We find so many of the big shot in Bollywood who are now tweeting to say ‘Oh we support Prime Minister Narendra Modi,’ who till recently have been partying like there was no tomorrow. One of them openly broke the rule of social distancing by using his connection to open a gymnasium in Mumbai.”

“These filmstars, these politicians. It’s the mindset that is coming to play, isn’t it?”

Actor Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput had found themselves embroiled in the coronavirus controversy last week after authorities accused the couple of posing a risk to public safety. Worse, both Shahid and Mira were reprimanded for their ‘irresponsible behaviour.’

This was after the Kabir Singh actor and his wife were found to be working out at a gym in Bandra where the civic authorities have imposed a ban on gyms following the outbreak of coronavirus. Of the three deaths reported from India so far, one has died in Mumbai.

Earlier, Goswami had also targeted Priyanka Chopra for attending the Holi celebration hosted by Isha Ambani earlier this month. In that Holi bash, Priyanka was seen playing Holi with Nita Ambani’s daughter-in-law Shloka Mehta.

On the work front, Shahid is currently shooting for Jersey, where he will be seen playing the character of a cricketer. Directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, the film is a Hindi remake of the Telugu film Jersey.


  1. Why slam Priyanka alone What about the hosts Ambanis who were irresponsible in the first place for hosting holi bash but then they are millionares so whatever they do is finej

    • That’s true Manvinder. As per the government all Millionaires, Politicians and the rich can do whatever they want and get away with it.Pathetic

  2. While we all have been asked to cancel unnecessary gatherings.. avoid crowd during Holi… Wasn’t it wrong even on Ambani’s to host a party? Why not slam them as well…. Well that he won’t…

  3. Arnab you are great, yeeeee you are great Arnab, you spoke well. Enough? Or shall we hats off for you?
    This is not the time for pointing out some body, rather speak less and apply more.
