Meanwhile, countless posts on Twitter found a "connection" between alleged old flames Amitabh Bachchan testing positive for COVID-19 and Rekha's bungalow getting sealed.

"Mr. Bachchan tested Covid positive. Rekha's bungalow sealed as her guard tested Covid positive," wrote a Twitter user.

However, as all these social media posts claim the two news stories to have a "connection", it was actually on Wednesday, July 8 when Rekha's bungalow was declared as a containment zone.

As per the story, a guard had tested positive on Tuesday. Meanwhile, after the guard tested positive, the actress got all her staff tested. Rekha's Sea Springs bungalow is located at Bandstand Bandra (W).
