Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Saturday said he has tested positive for COVID-19 and admitted in the Respiratory Isolation Unit of Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai.

Doctors told a TV channel he is responding well to treatment. "He is asymptomatic and stable," Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope said.

 

The 77-year-old actor shared his health update on Twitter, saying his family and staff members have undergone tests and are now waiting for their results. He also requested everyone who had come in contact with him over the last 10 days to get tested.

“I have tested COVID positive. Shifted to Hospital. Hospital informing authorities, family and staff undergone tests , results awaited,” Bachchan tweeted.

 

"All that have been in close proximity to me in the last 10 days are requested to please get themselves tested,” he added.

Amitabh Bachchan was last seen in Shoojit Sircar’s comedy-drama Gulabo Sitabo alongside Ayushmann Khurrana. The film was initially going to be released in theaters, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it premiered on an OTT platform.
