Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family have been placed recently under home quarantine for 14 days till 25 May.
The family had travelled to their hometown in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh on May 11 from Mumbai amid the nationwide lockdown. It is reported that Nawazuddin obtained permission from authorities in Mumbai for travelling. His mother, brother and sister-in-law also made the journey with him.
Nawazuddin also issued a short message on social media. He wrote, “Due to the recent loss of my younger sister, my mother who is 71 yrs old got anxiety attack twice. We have followed all the guidelines given by the State Government. We are #HomeQuarantined at our hometown Budhana. Please #StaySafe #StayHome (sic).”
The family travelled because Nawazuddin’s sister recently died due to cancer, and his 71-year-old mother is ill, Nawazuddin’s brother Shamas explained in a tweet.
