Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who will be undergoing a minor abdominal surgery on Saturday, says that the problem is a legacy of the accident during Coolie.

The 69-year-old actor suffered a near fatal intestinal injury on July 26, 1982 while filming a fight scene for Coolie with co-star Puneet Issar. He remained in hospital for many months at that time.

Bachchan was again admitted to hospital in 2005 and underwent bowel surgery.

"Let me just say that the issue and the problem is a legacy of the past in particular the accident of 1982 and Coolie. Subsequent disturbances have all and shall emanate from it. So I should learn to bear it now, feel the compulsion of the doctors to perform what they need to and leave myself and my body at their mercy," Bachchan wrote on his blog.

The actor also said that the CT scan has revealed some new problems and he is taking everything in good spirit.

"The CT Scan has brought up some new discoveries, other than what I am going in for, and that is depressing, but if we do not have will to fight it out, you may as well, put your hands up and submit. Taking it all one at a time shall hopefully resolve the issues, but waiting is what the doctors advise," he added.
