Amitabh Bachchan has been discharged from hospital, three weeks after being admitted with “mild” symptoms of the novel coronavirus disease.
Bachchan’s actor-son Abishek, who was admitted at the same time, reportedly remained in hospital, while his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai and granddaughter Aaradhya were discharged last week.
They were the highest-profile family in India to contract the virus in a country that worships movie stars. “I am back home. I will have to be in solitary quarantine in my room,” Bachchan wrote on Instagram, saying he had tested negative.
He thanked his family, fans “and the excellent care and nursing” at the hospital, saying they “made it possible for me to see this day”. At the time he said he had “mild” symptoms.
T 3613 – I have tested CoVid- have been discharged. I am back home in solitary quarantine.
Grace of the Almighty, blessings of Ma Babuji, prayers & duas of near & dear & friends fans EF .. and the excellent care and nursing at Nanavati made it possible for me to see this day . pic.twitter.com/76jWbN5hvM

The news came as powerful Indian Home Minister Amit Shah revealed he had tested positive for coronavirus, which is infecting tens of thousands of people a day — and killing hundreds — in the world’s second-most-populous country.
More than 1.7 million people have now been infected in India and more than 37,000 have died, giving it the world’s highest toll behind the United States and Brazil.
