Jeetendra, wife Shobha Kapoor receive COVID-19 vaccine


Mumbai: Veteran actor Jeetendra and his wife, producer Shobha Kapoor have received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine, their son, actor-producer Tusshar Kapoor said.

Tusshar Kapoor shared the news on Instagram on late Saturday evening.

The “Golmaal Again” star shared a picture of his parents — Jeetendra, 78, and Shobha Kapoor, 75 — posing with their doctor.

According to Tusshar Kapoor’s post, the couple received the Covishield vaccine.

“At last, vaccinated. #GoCoronaGo #GoGetVaccination #DrPai #Covishield,” he captioned the picture.

Apart from the Kapoors, other Indian celebrities who have received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine include veteran actor-MP Hema Malini, actor-politician Kamal Haasan, filmmaker Rakesh Roshan and actor Satish Shah.

The government, on March 1, launched the nationwide drive of getting everyone above 60 years of age — and those aged between 45-59 with co-morbidities — get vaccinated.
