Veteran actress-politician Hema Malini on Sunday posted a video to quash rumours of her ill health that started doing the rounds soon after Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan were hospitalised with COVID-19 infection.
"Radhe Radhe. I am absolutely fine and healthy. Nothing has happened to me. By your wishes and Lord Krishna's grace, I am fit. Thank you so much for your concern," Hema Malini said in the 28-second video she posted on her verified Instagram and Twitter accounts.
Earlier in the day, her daughter Esha Deol took to Twitter and clarified that Hema Malini was absolutely fine.
"My mother @dreamgirlhema is fit & fine ! The news regarding her health is absolutely fake so please don't react to such rumours! Thanks to everyone for their love & concern," Esha wrote.
The veteran actor's fans were relieved after reading Esha's tweet. "God bless hemaji..lots of love to hemaji," wrote one, while another said: "Stay happy and healthy Deol family."
Meanwhile, Hema on Sunday also tweeted to wish for Amitabh Bachchan's good health after he shared that he has been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus.
"Amit ji has tested positive & has been admitted to Nanavati hospital. I pray for his well being & I'm sure that with all our collective prayers, he will come out of this safely," she wrote in her tweet.
