NEW DELHI (AP) — Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan was discharged from a Mumbai hospital on Sunday after undergoing three weeks of treatment for the coronavirus.

His actor son, Abhishek Bachchan, who is still in the Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital with the virus, said in a tweet that his father has tested negative and will rest at home.

Both were hospitalized on July 11.

Abhishek Bachchan’s wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and their 8-year-old daughter, who both also contracted the virus, left the hospital last week after recovering. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is a top Bollywood actress.

The elder Bachchan, 77, has acted in more than 200 Indian films over the past five decades. He is also a former politician and television host.

The Bachchans are often called Bollywood’s first family. Amitabh Bachchan's wife, Jaya, is also an actress and a one-time member of Parliament. She was not hit by the coronavirus.

Dad sent 12 second goodbye message to wife and son as he lay in car wreckage

A DAD who lost both legs in a car crash sent an emotion 12 second "last goodbye" to his wife and son while in his wrecked car.

Cops found his phone and told his wife, Nikki, he had left a message for her.

Nick, a chef at the police training college in Crook, Co Durham, told the Mirror: "I knew that I might not make it and I just thought 'I cannot leave the planet without saying goodbye'.

"I think anyone would do that given the chance - I just had to get a message to them."

"It was very emotional listening to the message. It was quite harrowing. I thought 'wow', I cannot believe I did that."

Nikki was told about the crash when she called Nick's phone and a police officer answered.

She said: "I just said 'Is he dead?'. She explained he had been in a serious head on car accident and he had been airlifted to hospital and they would get someone to take me there. I knew then how serious it was.

"I was blue lighted there and they told me that he had severe spinal injuries and catastrophic leg injuries and he was in intensive care for 12 weeks."

Nick had both legs amputated after surviving the head-on smash near Witton-le-Wear on the A68 in September 2018.


He also overcame sepsis, multi organ failure, a fungal blood infection, kidney dialysis, blood clots and grade four bedsores.

Nick finally left hospital in October 2019 and moved into a rehabilitation care home to continue his recovery before eventually coming home.

During this time the outbreak of Covid-19 was announced and his care home went into lockdown.

His wife decided to stay with him but at the end of March the couple started exhibiting symptoms linked to coronavirus.

Nick was tested for Covid-19 which came back positive, and it was deemed his wife also had it as they had the same symptoms.

They quarantined together and managed to beat the virus and Nick was finally discharged from the care home in May.

Nick said: "Though my recovery journey is nowhere near complete and I am still horizontally bed bound, coming home is a massive step."

Nick and Nikki are now taking on a cycling challenge to raise money for GNAAS.

They will both be cycling 100 miles, Nikki on her exercise bike, and Nick on his hand bike.
