Bollywood actor Aishwarya Rai tests positive

Bollywood actor Aishwarya Rai tests positive

Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her daughter have tested positive for coronavirus. It comes a day after her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan, one of India's most famous actors, and her husband Abhishek confirmed they had the virus. Both men are currently in hospital in Mumbai. Their condition is stable.

It’s unclear if Aishwarya Rai and her eight-year-old daughter Aaradhya are in hospital.

Other members of the Bachchan family including Jaya Bachchan, the wife of Amitabh, have returned negative coronavirus antigen test reports, local media reported.

Mumbai municipal officials have since put up banners outside Amitabh Bachchan’s house in the city, classifying it as a "containment zone".
