The Bachchan family, including Amitabh Bachchan, son Abhishek, and daughter-in-law Aishwarya and granddaughter Aaradhya, tested positive for COVID-19 last month. While Sr Bachchan, along with his daughter-in-law and granddaughter, was discharged from the hospital after they tested negative, Abhishek was waiting for his tests to come negative.
On day 28, the actor shared an image of the song Yuhi Chala Chal Rahi from Shah Rukh Khan’s 2004 film Swades. The song helped the actor to keep himself motivated in the hospital.
Meanwhile, the actor tested COVID-19 negative on Saturday. Sharing his daily board on Instagram, Abhishek wrote, “This afternoon I tested Covid-19 NEGATIVE. Thank you all for your prayers and wishes. I’m so happy to be able to go home. #believe.”
