In July this year, Abhishek, his father Amitabh Bachchan, wife Aishwarya Rai and daughter Aaradhya had tested positive to coronavirus. Abhishek and Amitabh had to be shifted to a hospital immediately, while Aishwarya and Aaradhya were admitted to the hospital after initial few days of home quarantine. Abhishek took the longest to recover. On the day of his discharge, he wrote: “I TOLD YOU!!! Discharge plan: YES!! This afternoon I tested Covid-19 NEGATIVE.Thank you all for your prayers and wishes. I’m so happy to be able to go home. #believe My eternal gratitude to the doctors and nursing staff at Nanavati Hospital for taking such good care of me and my family and helping us beat Covid-19. We couldn’t have done it without them.”
