"Aishwarya and Aaradhya have also tested COVID-19 positive. They will be self quarantining at home... The rest of the family including my Mother have tested negative," Abhishek Bachchan tweeted.

Abhishek said he and his father were positive but both their cases were mild.

"My father and I remain in hospital till the doctors decide otherwise. Everyone please remain cautious and safe. Please follow all rules!"
