Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her daughter Aaradhya have also tested positive for the virus. Earlier Amitabh Bachchan and son Abhishek Bachchan were diagnosed with COVID-19 and admitted to the hospital.
Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope on Sunday said Aishwarya and her daughter were asymptomatic but tested positive while veteran actor-MP Jaya Bachchan’s diagnosis was negative.
He said the two can be quarantined at home or can get themselves admitted to hospital and it was up to the family to decide.
The minister also shared Aishwarya and Aaradhya’s diagnosis on Twitter but later deleted it. The BMC has declared the actor’s residence as a containment zone and all residents have been quarantined. Earlier, Amitabh and Abhishek had revealed about their COVID-19 status on twitter. The coronavirus case tally in Mumbai stands at 91,457 with 22,779 active patients.
