Amitabh Bachchan Slams False News Report About His Covid-19 Recovery
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Thursday slammed reports of him testing negative for COVID-19. The actor, who is currently undergoing treatment at Mumbai’s Nanavati Hospital, tweeted his reaction to news doing the rounds that he will soon be discharged.

Sharing false story which was run by English News Channel ‘Times Now’, Bachchan posted on Twitter, “this news is incorrect, irresponsible, fake and an incorrigible LIE!!”

In their news story, Channel said that they have got the news that Bachchan has tested Coronavirus negative according to their ‘sources’. They even did a phone interview with filmmaker and producer Ashoke Pandit about the same. In which Pandit said that ‘it’s great news for all of us’ and he hoped that like Senior Bachchan, his son Abhishek Bachchan, daughter in law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and granddaughter Aaradhya also recovers from the disease.

When Bachchan confirmed that it’s untrue, Twitterati heavily trolled Times Now and Ashoke Pandit for spreading fake news without confirming it.

Amitabh Bachchan and son Abhishek tested positive for coronavirus on July 11. A day later, Aishwarya Rai and daughter Aaradhya Bachchan were tested positive with mild symptoms, and they were home quarantined. However, on July 17, they were also shifted to Nanavati Hospital. According to hospital sources, the Bachchans are responding well to treatment.

Big B has been keeping his fans updated about his health while expressing gratitude for their constant wishes.
