Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has been taken to a hospital on his birthday today. He was complaining of stomach pain.
“Mr Bachchan has stomach pain, he’s undergoing medical tests. There is no cause for concern,” hospital spokesman Mohan Rajan told the Press.
Amitabh turned 66 today.
He was first taken to Nanavati Hospital in the suburbs but then was shifted to Lilawati Hospital. His wife and son were there with him and daughter Shweta joined them later. It’s been reported that close friends Amar Singh and industrialist Anil Ambani later came to see him, but weren’t allowed.
Bachchan was apparently celebrating his birthday when he felt the pain suddenly.
Senior specialist Jayant Barve, who has been the family doctor of the Bachchans, is treating him now and has also said that the mega-star is out of the danger.
“It’s his birthday today. It’s so sad that he has to be in hospital! My brave soldier, excellent co-star should get well very soon. Maybe it has happened due to the workload, but you can’t stop him from working hard because it is in his nature,” actress Nafisa Ali, who has played Amitabh’s wife in Major Saab, said.
