Soon police were seen arriving at the venue. According to MailOnline UK, “Police were alerted at around 17:40hrs on Wednesday, 6 January to reports of a Covid breach taking place within hairdressers on Lansdowne Mews, Notting Hill.Officers attended and the owner of the salon was given a verbal reminder of the need to comply with all regulations regarding Covid-19 and signposted to sources of advice.

But, the actress’ representatives denied that she flouted the COVID-19 rules. No fixed penalties were issued. According to Metro UK, “Following government guidance, Priyanka’s hair was coloured for the purpose of the film she is currently shooting in London.  ‘The salon was opened privately for the production and everyone involved had been tested and followed both the DCMS working guidelines and the film production regulations. As I am sure you are aware, Film and TV production is permitted to continue in the UK, and locations can continue to accommodate shoots and recces that are carried out in-line with government guidelines.  The exemption paperwork legally permitting here to be there was provided to the police, and they left satisfied.’”
