Four members of the Bachchan family including the megastar, his son, daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai, and granddaughter Aaradhya are currently being treated for the coronavirus at the hospital. Even though they are stable and recuperating well, they have not yet been tested negative for the virus. The rest of the family members – Jaya Bachchan, Shweta Nanda and her kids, Agastya and Navya Naveli, are quarantined at home for the next few days until the second round of test is conducted to ensure that they have not contracted the virus.
Earlier on Wednesday night, Bachchan made an interesting post in which he wrote about the importance of staying silent and not telling about your sorrows to people. In another post, he talked about religion and how prayer is a prayer irrespective of how it is offered in different religions.
Guess the fans will have to wait for a few more days until the family is declared COVID free!
