Yesterday, we came across the news reports of Amitabh Bachchan testing negative for Coronavirus, after more than a week of him undergoing treatment at the hospital. However, those strictly turned out to be just rumours, as Big B himself rubbished claims taking to his Twitter account. He reacted to an interview between filmmaker Ashoke Pandit and news channel, Times Now, which saw Ashoke expressing his elation over the speculations of Big B's health update. Amitabh reshared the clip called it an 'incorrigible lie', straight from Nanavati Hospital. Now, Ashoke has taken to his Twitter and reacted to claims of him spreading fake news.
The filmmaker revealed that he was invited by the news channel in question to react over the news, which he didn't break in the first place. Further, Ashoke wished the veteran actor a speedy recovery. "Dear @SrBachchan sir, since a reputed channel like @TimesNow called me and broke the news, I was simply relieved and gave my reaction. Still hoping and praying for your & your entire family’s speedy recovery," replied Pandit to Amitabh Bachchan's tweet that read, ".. this news is incorrect , irresponsible , fake and an incorrigible LIE !!"
Times Now's tweet on Big B had read, "All fans of @SrBachchan have prayed for his fast recovery. We were all sure that he will get well soon: @ashokepandit, Filmmaker tells TIMES NOW."

In response to Ashoke's tweet, fans wrote how Amitabh Bachchan's clarification was based on Times Now's tweet and not his reaction.
In other news, Big B, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Aaradhya Bachchan are currently recovering in the hospital.
