Amitabh Bachchan, along with son Abhishek Bachchan, daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai and granddaughter Aaradhya were tested positive for the coronavirus. While Big B and his son got admitted to the hospital on Sunday night itself, Aishwarya and Aaradhya were asked to quarantine at home. Earlier, in a tweet made on Sunday evening, Abhishek confirmed that his wife and daughter were quarantined at home and the rest of the family members including mom Jaya Bachchan and sister Shweta Bachchan among others were safe from the virus as of now.
It was in tweets made on Sunday night that both the actors announced their COVID-19 diagnosis and got admitted to the Nanavati Hospital. As the news broke in, the entire nation got together to pray for the Bachchan family. A special puja was organised at Ujjain’s Mahakaleshwar Temple on July 12 by a group of priests where a special session of Mahamrityunjaye Jaap was held to seek the well-being of the Bachchan family from the diety. The priests even carried the photos of Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan in their hands while conducting the puja.
