The Bombay Municipal Corporation on Monday sealed AntiGravity Club, a popular gym in Bandra where actor Shahid Kapoor and his wife, Mira Rajput Kapoor, were spotted working out on Sunday despite the state government’s directive to shut all gymnasiums across the state.
According to reports in Mumbai Mirror the gym opened at 5.30 pm exclusively for the couple, who spent two hours there. The newspaper clicked Shahid working out in the VIP area, while Mira stayed in the general workout area. When the couple spotted the journalists, they exited through a different gate.

Meanwhile, The Bombay Municipal Corporation, on Monday, sealed the gym and reprimanded both Kapoor and gym owner Yudhishthir Jaising for ‘irresponsible behaviour’.
The report further quoted Vinayak Vispute, Assistant Municipal Commissioner of H-West ward, confirming that a notice was sent to both Kapoor and the owner of the gym – Yudhishthir Jaising. He said, “It was wrong on the part of the gym to remain open, even for one patron. If gymnasiums don’t follow state directives, they will be booked under relevant sections and licenses will be revoked.”
However, Jaising denied the report and said he has been following the state’s directives and the gym has not been sealed. The owner added that his gym was shut since Friday and ‘no commercial activity’ took place after the order. He explained how Shahid is his ‘close friend’ and he was just spending some time with him at the gym. Jaising went on to say the actor had returned from Chandigarh and wanted some equipment from him. He said he was just teaching the actor the right way to use the equipment.
