The ongoing pandemic, which is spreading its deadly wings in India has hit Bollywood as Superstar Amitabh Bachchan contacted the virus and admitted to Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai.
Hours after Amitabh tested positive for the virus, his son Abhishek Bachchan too diagnosed with the dreaded virus. The duo was admitted to hospitals after developing mild symptoms of the virus.
Abhishek Bachchan took to Twitter to confirm the news and requested everyone to be calm and not panic.

We have informed all the required authorities and our family and staff are all being tested. I request all to stay calm and not panic. Thank you.," Abhishek's Tweet read.
If the information provided by some media reports are to be believed, only Amitabh and Abhishek contacted the virus and the family members were safe.
Reportedly, Aishwarya and Jaya Bachchan were tested negative for the virus. We might get more clarity in this regard once the swab results are out. The results are expected to be released today.
