The father-son duo tested positive for the novel coronavirus on Saturday and were admitted to the Nanavati hospital in Mumbai. According to ANI, special prayers are being offered for the good health of Amitabh and Abhishek at a temple in Ujjain and in Mumbai.

The Bachchan residence has been declared containment zone by the BMC and was sealed on Sunday after a sanitation drive at the place.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Aaradhya Bachchan have also tested positive for the virus. Jaya Bachchan has tested negative but will be tested again later to overrule any negative reporting. Meanwhile, the Bachchan residence is now a containment zone and all residents have been quarantined for 14 days.

The Don actor is reported to be in a “stable” condition with “mild symptoms” after testing positive. The 77-year-old actor also requested those, who have been in “close proximity” to him in the last 10 days to get tested for the deadly virus.

The actor has confirmed that he will keep updating about his health via Twitter. Abhishek had tweeted shortly after Amitabh’s tweet about the news and urged all to stay calm and not panic.
