Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan and son actor Abhishek Bachchan are currently admitted to Nanavati Hospital after being tested COVID-positive have been updating their social media feed, either with their health updates or sometimes just thanking everyone for praying for their speedy recovery. But the duo are also forced to face trolls on social media who are not backing down from spreading negativity surrounding the entire crisis the family is currently facing.

Amitabh lashed out at the trolls spreading negativity. Taking to his Twitter account, the actor wrote, " A hurt tongue can be cured but not the hurt caused by a bitter tongue.”

Before this, father Amitabh too had reacted sharply to trolls in an open letter he wrote from the COVID-19 ward in a Mumbai hospital. He penned the note to anonymous trolls who have been wishing his death due to the novel coronavirus. "they write to tell me... 'I hope you die with this Covid". "Hey Mr Anonymous... you do not even write your Father's name,... because you do not know who Fathered you... there are only two things that can happen... either I shall die or either I shall live. If I die you won't get to write your diatribe anymore, by weathering your remark on a celebrity name... pity."

He added: "The reason for your writing to be noticed was, because you took a swipe at Amitabh Bachchan... that shall no longer exist... !! If by God's grace I live and survive you shall have to be 'weathering' the 'swipe' storm, not just from me, but on a very conservative level, from 90+ million followers."

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and daughter Aaradhya too had tested positive. The mother-daughter duo was under home quarantine for a while before being admitted to the same hospital. On Monday, both of them were discharged after testing negative.
