Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter and announced that he had tested positive for Coronavirus. He wrote, “I have tested CoviD positive .. shifted to Hospital .. hospital informing authorities .. family and staff undergone tests , results awaited ..All that have been in close proximity to me in the last 10 days are requested to please get themselves tested!”
Soon after he tweeted, for some strange reason, Rekha started trending on Twitter. Earlier in the day, there were reports saying that Rekha’s Mumbai bungalow has been sealed and declared as containment zone by the BMC. This was after her security guard tested positive for COVID-19. Her bungalow Sea Springs has two security guards, one of whom has tested positive for the COVID-19, and is being treated at a facility in BKC. However, there was no official statement from the actress or her spokesperson.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions:

Our media always knows how to sensationalise shit. Have they no shame at all?
For the unaware, Amitabh Bachchan was tested positive and on a completely different note one of Rekha’s guards were tested positive too. Obviously the house gets sealed. But headline-#AmitabhBachchan pic.twitter.com/SEfNkMETug

After Amitabh Bachchan, even Abhishek Bachchan tweeted that he was tested positive. He took to Twitter and wrote, “Earlier today both my father and I tested positive for COVID 19. Both of us having mild symptoms have been admitted to hospital. 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.”
In another tweet, he said, “The BMC has been in touch and we are complying with them.”
Abhishek Bachchan had recently shared a note on the release of his Web Series, Breathe: Into the shadows. He wrote, “As an actor, our greatest joy is to receive a positive response to our hard work. Reading all your beautiful comments all day has been so wonderful and emotional.”
Meanwhile Amitabh keeps updating fans about his life and also shares trivia from his career. He recently took to Instagram to reveal that he shot his first drunk scene in the film Mili which also starred wife Jaya Bachchan. Sharing the artwork of the poster of the film, he wrote, “Art work for our film MILI .. Jaya and me .. and my first drunk scene .. much before mirror scene of AAA, Satte Pe Satta and HUM or Shakti.”
