Amitabh was admitted to hospital last month along with his son, Abhishek, who also tested positive. The actor's daughter-in-law, Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan, and granddaughter also had positive tests.
On Saturday, India reported more than 57,000 new cases in 24 hours – the highest daily total to date. It was the third day in a row that India recorded more than 50,000 new cases.
Maharashtra, home to the financial capital, Mumbai, is the worst affected state.
But there are rapid rises in many other parts of the country including Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Assam, reports BBC.
Amitabh Bachchan is one of the world's most prolific film stars having been involved in 200 films in five decades as a star.
With roles in hit movies such as Zanjeer and Sholay he has a huge fan following in India, South Asia, and among the Indian diaspora in countries including the UK and the US.
Since rising to fame in the 1970s, he has won numerous accolades including four National Film Awards and 15 Filmfare Awards. France has also bestowed its highest civilian award on him – the Legion of Honour – for his contribution to cinema.
Outside acting, Bachchan had a brief stint in politics and was elected as a member of India's parliament in 1984 at the behest of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi. But he resigned three years later, disillusioned by a corruption scandal under Gandhi's government.
