Lata Mangeshkar On The Bachchans’ Testing Covid Positive



 “It’s like a slap in  the face,” says India’s greatest singer Lata Mangeshkar  about Amitabh Bachchan and his family testing  positive  for Covid19.

 Lataji has been upset ever since she heard the  news.  “It is hard  to believe  that the virus has struck Bachchan Saab and his family. The  virus spares  no one. We need to understand that it is here to stay. It’s not going anywhere  for  some  time now.”

Lataji has a special fondness  for the Bachchans. “Both Amitabhji and Jayaji give  me  a lot of love  and  respect. I know they  are very fond of ,as I am of them. I am a big fan of  the works  of  both specially in  the films where they were cast  together  like Abhimaan , Zanjeer and Silsila. I  Wish them a  speedy recovery. I am  sure all of them Amitabhji, Jayaji, Aishwarya, Abhishek and their daughter Aaradhya will be fine  in no time  at all.”

Lataji is  specially worried  about little Aaradhya,  “Choti hai woh. Bachchi  hai. Ussey aise kasht nahi honi chahiye. Main  poore parivar ke  liye duayen mangtee  hoon aur khaas kar ke Aaradhya ke liye(she is  a child she shouldn’t suffer  .I pray  for  the entire Bachchan family and specially for Aaradhya).”

The  Nightingale who  was  seriously ill and in Hospital in November-December  2019  is  worried  for Mr Bachchan’s immunity system. “He has  been very unwell in the past.And his body has taken a lot of  stress. His immunity level must be  low.But I am sure he can fight back.”

 Lataji has been in complete quarantine  throughout the lockdown. “I don’t meet anyone.I’ve two full-time inhouse  nurses  to look after me. My doctors have  advised me  against it.I spend my time on my own praying,meditating,  watching television, reading, resting, sleeping. Everyone should try to  enjoy their own company. It is a  learning  experience.”
