Sorry, nothing in cart.
India’s film industry was on edge Sunday after several of Bollywood’s biggest stars were sent to hospital after testing positive for coronavirus.
Superstar Amitabh Bachchan was in a “stable” condition in the isolation unit at Nanavati Hospital, the facility said in a statement, after he and his son Abhishek Bachchan were both admitted following positive tests late Saturday evening.
And soon later Abhiskek Bachchan’s wife, the heralded actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, also entered hospital. The couple’s daughter tested positive for Covid-19 too.
“Amitabh Bachchan is stable with mild symptoms and is currently admitted in the isolation unit of the hospital,” the hospital’s statement said.
A living legend in Hindi-language cinema, Bachchan has made more than 180 films in a career spanning five decades. He is hailed by many as India’s greatest living actor, and is revered in his home nation.
Bachchan starred in his first film in 1969. Since then, he has dominated the silver screen for nearly half a century — most of India’s 70 years as an independent nation.
Tributes and well-wishes were sent to all members of the illustrious family, with Bachchan, 77, being particularly heralded on social media.
