The mother-daughter duo was admitted to hospital after they were reportedly having trouble breathing. They had initially remained in self quarantine but a local Indian daily reported that they were moved to Nanavati Hospital after they complained of breathlessness.
Earlier, reports of Amitabh Bachchan being tested negative too were circulating on social media which he rubbished via social media. Reports turned out to be fake and he still remains in hospital with Abishek Bachchan. Taking to Twitter he wrote, “this news is incorrect, irresponsible, fake and an incorrigible LIE.”
The Bachchan family remains to be one of the most influential and loved families of Bollywood.
