Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan was recently hospitalised at the Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai. While some reports suggested that it was a routine check-up, there were various rumours that suggested a fast-deteriorating liver condition led to him being admitted. Soon Big B took to his blog to clear the air on his health condition. The Paa actor urged people to respect other's privacy and not commercialise someone's health conditions.
Now, the actor has taken to the same blog to give an update about his health. The actor wrote that since his hospital visit, he has lost five kilogram. "They tell me there is a loss of weight since the last few days. True. It's almost 5 kgs, which is just so fantastic for me.,’’ he wrote on his blog. "A lightness in the step, a controlled and sparse diet and the hours of rest developed to the optimum. Many among the Ef (extended family) would be delighted with the news, that is if they genuine in their concern and care. But it is well known that that is a given and my regard and affection for them that advise, I do take them seriously. So..." he added.
