Mr. Bachchan, known as Big B, is not simply an enormously successful actor. He is one of India’s most revered figures. His face and rich, avuncular voice, dripping with gravitas, are everywhere, deployed in ads for household products, voice-overs at museums and countless public service campaigns.

Along with Mr Bachchan, four members of the Bachchan family have tested positive for coronavirus. Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek announced that they had contracted the coronavirus on Saturday.

Amitabh tweeted to inform his fans, “T 3590 -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!”

Actor Abhishek Bachchan son of Mr Bachchan, meanwhile, asked fans to stay calm and not panic. He tweeted, “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.”

On Sunday, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan former miss world and daughter-in-law of Mr Bachchan and her daughter Aaradhya Bachchan were tested positive for coronavirus as well. The rest of the family members, including wife of Mr. Bachchan former actor Ms. Jaya Bachchan, Shweta Bachchan (daughter) and her children, tested negative.

While Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan have been advised to stay at the Nanavati hospital, Aishwarya and Aaradhya will quarantine at home.

"Amitabh Bachchan is stable with mild symptoms and is currently admitted in the isolation unit of the hospital," the Public Relation Officer of Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital in Mumbai said on Sunday morning.

“Aishwarya and Aaradhya have also tested COVID-19 positive. They will be self-quarantining at home.

His test results came in on Saturday evening, but his doctors refrained from making an announcement as the megastar himself wanted to inform his followers of the same. Doctors also said that Nanavati hospital will not give out a health bulletin on the superstar, the Bachchan family will update people on the same
