Sources claimed that it was just a routine check-up, and the 77-year-old is doing fine.
MUMBAI: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was discharged from Nanavati Hospital here on Friday night after being admitted for some routine check-up, hospital sources said.

Bachchan had gone for a routine check-up at the hospital on Tuesday and remained there for the next two days. At around 10 pm, Bachchan left the hospital with his wife Jaya Bachchan and son Abhishek, the sources said.

Reports of Bachchan, who turned 77 on October 11, suffering a liver problem were doing the rounds but sources claimed there was no truth to it.

"He came to the hospital for routine check-up. He is doing fine. He is hale and hearty," sources had said earlier.

On Thursday, Bachchan had posted a picture with wife Jaya, wishing her on Karwa Chauth.

On work front, the actor is currently hosting 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' and has already shot a few episodes in advance. He also has four films lined up, 'Gulabo Sitabo', 'Brahmastra', 'Chehre', and 'Jhund'.

King Of All Trades

9 Oct, 2019
A name that needs no introduction, a voice that is recognised by millions, and a presence that makes even the most established actors nervous. Amitabh Bachchan is in every sense one of the biggest superstars the country has seen. Having spent 50 years in the industry, and given fans masterpieces like 'Zanjeer', ‘Deewar’, ‘Sholay’, ‘Black’, and ‘Paa’ among several others, the Big B - as he commonly known - is a force to be reckoned with, even as he turns 77. Showing no signs of slowing down, the Padma Vibhushan-awardee’s upcoming films include Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra’, Shoojit Sircar’s ‘Gulabo Sitabo’ and Rumi Jaffery’s ‘Chehre’. While continuing to enthrall audiences every time he comes on screen, the superstar, who was 'selected unanimously' for Dadasaheb Phalke award this year, also dabbled in several other trades - sometimes succeeding, at other times not so much - through the course of his professional journey. Here’s a look at Bachchan Sr. beyond films.
