Mumbai Mirror reported that the actor, who celebrated his 77th birthday last week, was rushed to hospital on Tuesday at 2 am, and has been there since the past three days.
He is reportedly being treated for a liver problem. The actor had contracted Hepatitis B virus in 1982, while undergoing treatment for a near-fatal accident on the sets of 'Coolie'. His liver lost 75 per cent of its function due to cirrhosis as one of his blood donors was incidentally carrying the Hepatitis B virus which entered his system during transfusion.
Reports also suggest that the actor is staying at a special room, equivalent to an ICU, and is being visited by the family frequently.
However, the Big B - an avid social media user - has continued his Twitter activity, leaving fans confused.
On Thursday, Bachchan posted a picture with wife Jaya, wishing her on Karva Chauth.
