The veteran actor said in his message that his family and staff had undergone tests and the results are awaited.
Doctors had confirmed that Amitabh Bachchan was symptomatic and was self-isolating at home before being taken to the Nanavati Hospital on July 10 evening.
While the actor had been staying at home ever since the lockdown began on March 25, he had recently shot promotional content Kaun Banega Crorepati and other projects at his home and hence had contact with the production crew who came to his house.
