India’s most famous movie star, Amitabh Bachchan, and his son Abhishek are in stable condition after being infected with the Coruna virus, an official at a hospital and health authorities in India said on Sunday.
The legend, 77, said on Twitter last night that the test had shown him infected with the highly contagious virus.
Minutes later, his son Abhishek Bachchan, 44, also said on Twitter that he had contracted the disease.
The two were taken to Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai, although they had only mild symptoms, and the father and son appealed to millions of fans to be calm and not to panic.
A Mumbai hospital official and government officials from Mumbai said Sunday that the father and son were in stable condition. The media is awaiting reports on the status of the two famous actresses, Jaya, wife of Amitabh Bachchan, and Aishwarya, wife of Abhishek.
Civil authorities have begun a massive sterilization process at the upscale Bachchan residence in Mumbai and have sprayed antiseptics in the large compound and on parked cars there.
The Bollywood legend had been helping India in its war on the Corona Virus and had appeared in advertisements to urge people to use masks, wash hands and maintain social spacing.
Coronavirus cases are increasing steadily in India. The Reuters count shows that the disease has infected more than 820,000 people and killed more than 22,000 in the country.
