Amitabh Bachchan’s Fans Are Performing A Non-Stop Yagna For The Family’s Health In Kolkata

On July 11, Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan tested positive for coronavirus and were shifted to Nanavati hospital in Mumbai. Thereafter, their entire family and staff were tested and it was found that Aishwarya and Aaradhya also had COVID-19. Since they were asymptomatic, they are quarantining at home.

According to The Times of India, Big B’s fans in Kolkata have been performing a non-stop ‘mahamrityunjay yagna’ for the family’s health ever since.

NDTV quoted Sanjoy Patodia of the Amitabh Bachchan Fans Association saying,

“We will continue the yagna until all members of the Bachchan family recover, which we know is a matter of a few days. We had initially planned the yagna at the temple of the “Shahenshah” (king of kings) of the Indian film industry, but due to the rains and waterlogging we are holding the rituals in my flat, located next to the temple.”

Business Insider quoted him adding,

“However, we have not been allowing visitors in the temple since the lockdown began. The yagna is also being attended by a limited number of fans. Bachchan sir and his family are aware of our love and respect. He, Abhishek Bachchan, Jaya-ji and Aishwarya-ji know us. He has also been asking us to be careful in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.”

The Indian Express reports that a similar hawan was organized at the Mahakaleshwar temple in Ujjain. We wish the family a speedy recovery.
