Film producer Ritesh Sidhwani has slammed several who have allegedly sent him "insensitive" messages on WhatsApp about his niece for undergoing Coronavirus tests. Posting a lengthy message on social media, Sidhwani informed that his niece had recently returned from London and as per rules, the producer took her to Kasturba Hospital after she developed a fever and cough. And, while the results turned out to be negative, the producer claimed that people had already started spreading rumours about her health.

"But while the medical report was still awaited, a certain WhatsApp Medical College had already declared her positive. And they don’t just reveal her identity but also spell out where she resided", he wrote.
