He was advised to take some rest so he stayed back for a few days. Unfortunately, I can’t reveal much about it as we have to respect his privacy,” the source said. Quashing rumours about Bachchan undergoing liver treatment, the source added, “It is not true at all. He is still in the hospital and doing fine. We don’t know when he will be discharged from the hospital.”
