Bollywood was left reeling on Sunday after actress Aishwarya Rai tested positive for coronavirus , 24 hours after her actor-husband Abhishek Bachchan and father-in-law Amitabh were admitted to a hospital with the disease. Abshishek Bachchan had recently dubbed a film, sparking fears of an outbreak within the Indian film industry.

We are conducting contact tracing among all staff members, and till now 30 have been identified as high risk contacts.” The Bachchan family have tested positive at a time when Bollywood has been hit with the deaths of top artists Rishi Kapoor, Irrfan Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput, though they did not die from coronavirus.
