Earlier today both my father and I tested positive for COVID 19. Both of us having mild symptoms have been admitted to hospital. We have informed all the required authorities and our family and staff are all being tested. I request all to stay calm and not panic. Thank you. 🙏🏽

Test results of other family members and staff are awaited.
While Amitabh had been staying at home ever since the lockdown began on March 25, he had recently shot promotional content for the quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati and other projects at his home and hence had contact with the production crew who came to his house.
Amitabh’s Juhu located residence ‘Jalsa’ will be sanitized completely by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC).
Soon after the tweet, everyone who came across the news including Big B’s fans and the fraternity member whished his speedy recovery.
Dear Amitabh ji, I join the whole Nation in wishing you a quick recovery!
After all, you are the idol of millions in this country, an iconic superstar!
