Pak Minister wishes Amitabh speedy recovery
A fan of Amitabh Bachchan since his student days, Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik has wished the ailing megastar a speedy recovery. "Mr Amitab Bachan (sic), I wish you to get well soon. I am one of your fans since I was a student. I pray for your good health...regards," Malik wrote in the microblogging site Twitter.
On February 11, Bachchan underwent abdominal surgery and is currently recuperating at the Seven Hills hospital in Mumbai.
The 69-year-old Bollywood star was supposed to be out of the hospital shortly after the scheduled surgery, but he complained of acute abdominal pain, forcing extension of his stay in the hospital. However, hospital sources today said that he was on his way to recovery.
Bachchan has been battling a string of stomach ailments since his near fatal intestinal injury while filming a fight scene in 1982 movie "Coolie". PTI
