Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her eight-year-old daughter have been hospitalized almost a week after they tested positive for COVID-19.
The 46-year-old Indian actress, former Miss World, and one of Bollywood’s most famous faces, and her daughter Aaradhya are being treated at Mumbai’s Nanavati Hospital, ANI Agency reports.
Aishwarya‘s actor husband, Abhishek Bachchan, and Bollywood superstar father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan, have been in hospital since Saturday. Their condition was described as “mild” at the time.
No further update on the family’s condition has been released, but Amitabh tweeted on Friday, “In happy times, in times of illness, you our near and dear, our well wishers, our fans have ever given us unstinting love.”
Prior to Aishwarya and Aaradhya’s hospitalization, Abhishek also tweeted, “My father and I remain in hospital till the doctors decide otherwise. Everyone please remain cautious and safe. Please follow all rules!”
