Mumbai: Actor Aishwarya Rai and daughter Aaradhya Bachchan have tested positive for the coronavirus, while Rai’s mother-in-law Jaya Bachchan has tested negative, Suresh Kakani, Additional Municipal Commissioner, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has told ThePrint.

The news came a day after Amitabh Bachchan and son Abhishek Bachchan said they had tested positive for Covid-19 and were admitted to a hospital here.

Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar, earlier, has tweeted saying Aishwarya and Jaya Bachchan had tested negative, but later deleted the tweet.

The mayor also said the Bachchan residence is now a containment zone and all residents have been quarantined for 14 days.

Members of the Bachchan family, including the megastar’s grand daughter Aaradhya, took the rapid antigen detection test, Pednekar said.

“I have tested COVID positive. Shifted to Hospital. Hospital informing authorities, family and staff undergone tests, results awaited,” Amitabh, 77, tweeted on Saturday.

“All that have been in close proximity to me in the last 10 days are requested to please get themselves tested, he had added. He has been moved to the isolation ward of the Nanavati Hospital.
