A day after Amitabh Bachchan and his son Abhishek revealed their diagnosis of Covid-19, Aishwarya Rai also tested positive for the virus. 

As per reports, coronavirus has struck  famed Bachchan family. The father-son duo  were admitted to Nanavati Hospital on Saturday after showing mild symptoms, while the megastar’s daughter-in-law  confined herself to home with the infectious disease.

Following the news of acting legend Amitabh and his son’s diagnosis of Covid-19, the rest of the family members,  guards and maid  underwent tests.  Aishwarya and her daughter were  tested positive.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan clinched the Miss World title in 1994, and went on to act in several Bollywood and Hollywood films after that, including Gurinder Chaddha’s 'Bride and Prejudice' and 'Pink Panther 2'.

The 46-year-old actress has also been the face of top international brands since she joined the showbiz.

Aishwarya tied the knot with Abhishek Bachchan in 2007.  The couple have a daughter, Aaradhya, born in 2011. She was also tested for Covid-19.

Abhishek made his Bollywood debut with 'Refugee' in 2000. He has since shown his acting skills in more than 50 films.

The 44-year-old actor's latest series 'Breathe' premiered on Amazon’s Prime Video platform just one day before he tested positive for coronavirus. 

The elder Bachchan, 77 -- idolised in India and affectionately known as "Big B" -- has a more than four-decade-long career in the film industry.

He was voted "actor of the millennium" in a BBC online poll in 1999 and became the first Indian actor to gain a lookalike at London’s Madame Tussauds waxworks museum.
