During his three-week recovery from coronavirus, the 77-year-old actor received ‘death wishes’ on his social media from people hoping he would die but he declared on his Twitter that he knew his fans would pray for him. In fact, some admit they’ve not slept for the last three weeks due to performing prayers, and it looks like those prayers have paid off.
Aishwarya and her daughter were discharged earlier but Abhishek who currently stars in crime drama Breathe: Into the Shadows on Amazon Prime, which launched days before he was admitted to hospital, is still there. Though he’s not yet been given the all-clear he’s taken to social media to say he is ‘very humbled and indebted’ to those who have been praying for him and hoped to ‘beat it and come back healthier.’
Other film industry favourites who have contracted the virus include Telugu Director SS Rajamouli who made the Baahubali epics and his family, who are all currently in quarantine.
