Yesterday, 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. The BMC has been in touch and we are complying with them. I request all to stay calm and not panic. Thank you. 🙏🏽
News of Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan contracting COVID-19 came as a shock to us all. Not just them, but Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and daughter Aaradhya Bachchan had also caught the virus. They were just discharged from the hospital after testing negative post the treatment. Amitabh and Abhishek are still in the hospital under medical care and are constantly updating and thanking their fans for all their prayers.
Just last night, Abhishek took to his Instagram to share a glimpse of his late night stroll in the empty corridors of Nanavati hospital. He captioned it, “Light at the end of the tunnel! #LateNightWalks“.
Soon after he posted the picture, messages poured in from his friends and fans. Sister Shweta Bachchan wrote, ‘Soon’. His friend Farah Khan Kunder wrote, ‘Get well soon junior‘. Harshvarrdhan Kapoor wrote, ‘AB you beauty..get in‘. He has also been sharing some beautiful pictures of the expansive sky from his room in the hospital.
On the other hand, his father, Amitabh, wrote in his blog that he wonders what do with all his time. He says that he spends all his time looking forward to the doctors and nurses visiting him, to the treatment and medication, and the cycle goes on. He says it feels like ‘Waiting for Godot’, as there is nothing else to look forward to.
Here’s hoping both Amit Ji and Abhishek recover very soon!
