One of Amitabh Bachchan's doctors told India Today TV that the superstar had been complaining of breathlessness over the last couple of days. He has tested positive for coronavirus.

Amitabh Bachchan was shifted to the Nanavati hospital in Mumbai after testing positive for coronavirus on Saturday. The Bollywood megastar informed about his Covid-19 report on Twitter and asked all those who have been in close proximity to him to get themselves tested for coronavirus.

One of Amitabh Bachchan's doctors spoke to India Today Television and said that the superstar had been complaining of breathlessness over the last couple of days. He took a Covid-19 test and the results said positive on Saturday evening, following which he was admitted to the hospital.

Amitabh Bachchan, however, is not on ventilator currently, the doctor said.

The doctor said that they did not make the formal announcement as Amitabh Bachchan himself chose to make the announcement and inform his fans.

"I have tested Covid positive. Shifted to Hospital. Family and staff undergone tests, results awaited. All that have been in close proximity to me in the last 10 days are requested to please get themselves tested," Amitabh Bachchan said in a tweet Saturday evening.
