The pair were taken in after they “developed breathlessness” according to the Times of India.

It comes after Aishwarya’s husband Abhishek Bachchan, 44, and her father-in-law Amitabh, 77, revealed they had coronavirus and were in hospital last week.

Abhishek revealed his wife and daughter had tested positive in a tweet on Sunday.

On Sunday, Amitabh, often dubbed the ‘King of Bollywood’ tweeted that he had tested positive for the virus.

He wrote: “I have tested Covid positive .. shifted to Hospital .. hospital informing authorities .. family and staff undergone tests , results awaited..

“All that have been in close proximity to me in the last 10 days are requested to please get themselves tested!”

On Friday, India recorded a record 35,000 new coronavirus cases in just 24 hours, taking the country past the one-million mark.

The country, whose death toll stands at 26,273, now has the third-highest number of cases in the world, behind the US and Brazil.

Aishwarya is known for starring in films such as Jodhaa Akbar, Devdas, and the Bollywood adaptation of a Jane Austen classic Bride & Prejudice.

She also played Sonia in The Pink Panther 2, alongside Steve Martin.

Such is her global reach that a waxwork of her was added to the collection of stars at Madame Tussaud’s in London in 2004.
