Amitabh Bachchan and his son, actor Abhishek Bachchan, who were admitted to a hospital here after testing positive for Covid-19, are “responding well” to the treatment, hospital sources said on Tuesday. Amitabh 77 years old, and Abhishek 44 years old, revealed their diagnosis on Twitter on July 11, saying they were in the isolation ward of Nanavati Hospital.
“Both are stable and are responding well to the treatment. They will have to be in the hospital for at least seven days,” the hospital insider told PTI.
Apart from the father-son duo, the screen icon’s daughter-in-law, actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan 46 years old, and 8-year-old granddaughter Aaradhya Bachchan also tested positive for Covid-19. Abhishek confirmed Aishwarya and Aaradhya’s diagnosis on the Twitter site on Sunday, adding that they will be “self-quarantining at home”.
On Monday night, Amitabh thanked his fans and well-wishers for brightening the darkness of his isolation with their messages of love.
