    New Delhi (Sputnik): Several members of the most prominent and beloved family in Bollywood, the Bachchans, tested positive for COVID-19 in July, all except for Jaya Bachchan – wife of megastar Amitabh. Former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, granddaughter Aaradhya and Big B himself have all since recovered from the disease.

    Bollywood Actor Abhishek Bachchan has expressed “eternal gratitude” to the doctors, nurse and his fans after recovering from COVID-19 on Saturday.

    The actor was elated when he announced on his social media profile that he has been discharged from Mumbai’s Nanavati hospital and is happy to be able to go home.

    “This afternoon I tested Covid-19 NEGATIVE!!! I told you guys I’d beat this. Thank you all for your prayers for me and my family. My eternal gratitude to the doctors and nursing staff at Nanavati hospital for all that they have done. THANK YOU!” said Abhishek.

    He also shared a picture of his care board from the hospital.

    Yesterday, Amitabh took to Instagram to share his first picture post recovery. The father-son duo were admitted to the Mumbai hospital on 11 July. After three weeks Amitabh returned home after beating the disease.

    Amitabh’s actress daughter-in-law and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and his granddaughter Aaradhya both tested negative at the end of July and were discharged from hospital.
