The Bachchan family is not amused by speculative reports on their health put out by websites eager to win hits by being the first to report and by news channels that thrive on sensationalism. However health issues are a pure no-no when it comes to speculative reporting. Sources close to the BachchansÂ say the family is appalled by false reports especially on the senior Bachchansâ€™ health.
AfterÂ a news channel wrongly reported thatÂ the BigÂ B had tested negative for Covid19, Big B in an unusual outburst of anger tweeted against the news report: â€œThis news is incorrect, irresponsible, fake and an incorrigible LIE!â€
Though the news channel issued an apology, the damage was done, as industry spokesperson Ashoke PanditÂ was asked to react to the â€œnewsâ€ of Big B testing negative. SaysÂ Pandit, â€œI reacted to the question I was asked. How was I to know that the news was false? One would hardly expect a channel so reputed to goof up. Anyway, it was aboutÂ BachchanÂ Saabâ€™s good health. What is wrong with that?Â Corona virus is the one thing where â€˜negativeâ€™ is positive news.â€
However theÂ Bachchans have their own take on health reports. â€œTheyâ€™ve been keeping quiet about their health, and with reason. The hospital has strictly warned the family from giving out information on their health status. All I can tell you is they are all improving by the day. But to report thatÂ BachchanÂ Saab has tested negative for Corona was jumping the gun. Where did they get this information? These are hard times for the world and for the Bachchan family. Please show some sensitivity,â€ says a friend of the family.
