Abhishek Bachchan talks about COVID time spent with father, Amitabh Bachchan

Abhishek Bachchan talks about the time spent with Amitabh Bachchan at the COVID hospital.

While talking about fighting COVID-19 last year alongside father, Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan says, ‘He’s a good roomie’. Both Abhishek Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan were admitted to the same hospital. Abhishek Bachchan opened up about the time they spent together in an Instagram Live chat with motivational speaker Anand Chulani.

Actor Abhishek Bachchan spoke about how he fought the virus, along with his father, Amitabh Bachchan. He further delved into his fears regarding his father’s health and the time they had spent together at the hospital.

Abhishek and Amitabh were the first ones in the Bachchan family to catch the virus in July 2020. Abhishek’s wife and daughter, Aishwarya Rai and Aaradhya were later found to be COVID positive.

He said, “Initially, my father and I were in the hospital together. A week later my wife and daughter were hospitalised. Thankfully, they only had to be there for about a week then they came out, and my dad and I stayed on for a bit longer because we hadn’t tested negative,”

“Well, he is good company to have, so it was wonderful to wake up and go see my father who last year was 78 years old, a man with severe comorbidities but him being positive and having that fighting spirit to get through this. At that point of time my energies were obviously directed towards him and him becoming better because you fear for your parents, it’s actually of a sensitive age group,” said Abhishek Bachchan.

However, Abhishek seemed to have enjoyed his father’s company,calling him a good roomie.

“I mean he is also a great friend of mine, so it was good to shoot the breeze with him and you know when you are a Covid patient although you can interact with other patients, there is nothing else to do, you just have to wait around. So, there was some good banter that went on, I mean he is a good roomie in that sense,” Abhishek said.
