Actor Amitabh Bachchan’s daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda, posted a picture and spoke of ‘absence’ on Tuesday. The post was seen in the context of her family’s struggle against coronavirus.
Sharing a picture of the blue sky, she wrote: “… absence is like the sky, spread over everything” – C.S Lewis.” It is not clear where the picture is from but it appears to be from her parents’ home in Mumbai. The picture shows a rich blue sky with equally thick cloud cover. Sun makes an unclear but blazing appearance.
Shweta hasn’t been very regular with her posts of late. Her last post was on Father’s Day with her dad Amitabh from the time she was just born. Another one was to wish her parents on their wedding anniversary in June. July has been a worrying one for the Bachchan household. Mid-month, Amitabh and his son Abhishek Bachchan tested positive to coronavirus. A couple of days later, Aishwarya Rai and her daughter Aaradhya too tested positive to Covid-19.
However, according to doctors attending to them, Amitabh , Abhishek , Aishwarya Rai and granddaughter Aaradhya are responding well to the treatment to Covid-19, hospital sources said on Saturday (July 18). Amitabh, 77, and Abhishek, 44, are in the isolation ward of Nanavati hospital since July 11 after they were diagnosed with Covid-19, while Aishwarya, 46 and eight-year-old Aaradhya were shifted to the facility on Friday night, almost a week after they tested positive for the virus.The mother-daughter duo were self-quarantining at home till Thursday.
“They all (referring to Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek, Aishwarya and Aaradhya) are ok. They are responding well to the treatment. They are in the isolation ward. Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan will be in the hospital maybe for a day or two,” a hospital source told PTI. “Aishwarya had cough. She is ok now. Aishwarya and Aaradhya will have to be in the hospital for a couple of days,” the insider added.
