Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan and his son and actor Abhishek Bachchan have been tested positive for Corona and have been admitted to Mumbai’s Nanavati hospital.

Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to share the news. He tweeted, “I have tested CoviD positive .. shifted to Hospital .. hospital informing authorities .. family and staff undergone tests , results awaited ..All that have been in close proximity to me in the last 10 days are requested to please get themselves tested!”

Abhishek Bachchan also has been tested positive for COVID-19  and he has shared the same on Twitter. Sources said that they are stable and under observation. Doctors at the Ninavati hospital have informed that both show mild symptoms for Corona and there is nothing to worry.

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.
