Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan has been discharged from hospital three weeks after being admitted with symptoms of coronavirus after testing positive for the disease.
Bachchan’s actor-son Abishek, admitted at the same time, remains in hospital. Her stepdaughter, Aishwarya Rai, and granddaughter Aaradhya were released last week.
They were the most prominent family in India to contract the virus in a country that worships movie stars.
“I’m back home. I’m going to have to be in solitary quarantine in my room, ”Bachchan wrote on Instagram, claiming he had tested negative. He thanked his family, his 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.
