With both Big B and Junior Bachchan contracting the virus and now Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Aaradhya Bachchan too testing positive for the virus, the big question that arises for the authorities is how they contracted the virus?
As per reports in ABP, the below mentioned routes are the possible reasons the Bachchans got infected with the virus:
The report stated that Abhishek Bachchan could have contracted the virus when he visited a dubbing studio in Versova on July 8, 2020 for his recently released web-series, Breathe: Into The Shadow.
That's not it, the portal also states another theory that is related to their residential area which is considered to be in the vicinity of COVID-19 hotspot, Andheri.
As they reside with family in their lavish bungalow Jalsa which is in Juhu, the Bachchans might have caught the virus via local transmission.
