Aishwarya’s father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan and her husband Abhishek Bachchan are currently also being treated for COVID-19 in Mumbai’s Nanavati Hospital.
New Delhi, July 18:
Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been taken to Mumbai’s Nanavati Hospital to be treated for COVID-19, news agency ANI reports. The 46-year-old actress tested positive some days ago and was placed in isolation at the Bachchan residence Jalsa, which was sealed by the Brihanmumbai Corporation or BMC as were the three other bungalows owned by the family. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan and husband Abhishek are also in Nanavati Hospital. They tested positive last week. Aishwarya and Abhishek’s eight-year-old daughter also has COVID-19. Amitabh Bachchan’s wife Jaya tested negative for the virus.
Earlier this week, Abhishek Bachchan announced in a tweet that his wife and daughter had tested positive for the Coronavirus. His post ended a brief period of confusion in which Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope shared and then deleted a tweet revealing that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her daughter’s test results were positive.

Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan announced last weekend that they had tested positive and were in hospital. Big B, 77, wrote: “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.”
Soon after, Abhishek Bachchan tweeted, “My father and I remain in hospital till the doctors decide otherwise. Everyone please remain cautious and safe. Please follow all rules.”
Nanavati Hospital authorities said the next day that the Bachchans were stable and were in the isolation ward.
Amitabh Bachchan has been posting on social media from hospital. He thanked fans and medical staff in separate posts.
