Priyanka Chopra Jonas allegedly stripped COVID-19 norms in London on Wednesday as she visited a salon with her mother Madhu Chopra and pet Diana. But a statement from the actor’s team shows that he was allowed to go out for work.
Chopra, who is currently in the UK shooting her next film, Text for You, went to the salon as she was ‘legally free from the rules’.
Metro.co.uk quoted its spokesperson as saying, “The saloon was opened for production privately and all the people involved were tested and both the DCMS working guidelines and film production regulations was brought up. As I am sure you are aware, film and TV production is allowed to continue in the UK, and locations can continue to be shot and done according to government guidelines. The waiver paperwork legally allows him to do it there, was provided to the police, and they are satisfied. “
As Priyanka Chopra visited the salon, the police were cautious about it. Celebrity stylist Josh Wood, who was also present at the salon, was given a verbal warning against the lockdown ban. But no punishment was issued to him.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police told Metro.co.uk, “Police were alerted at around 17: 40hrs on Wednesday, January 6, about the report of the exorcism of Kovid within a hairdresser on Lansdowne Mews, Notting Hill. Officers attended and the owner of the salon was given a verbal reminder of the critical need to follow all the rules regarding Kovid-19 and to sign other sources of advice. No fixed penalty notice was issued. “
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday announced a new national lockdown to bounce and slow down COVID-19 cases. The latest national lockdown rules include the closure of schools, colleges, spas and salons.
