Speculation about the health status of veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan has been rife since reports of his hospitalisation for liver treatment surfaced on the internet. A source from Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital, Mumbai reveals that the actor was hospitalised on Tuesday for a health-related issue.

“Amitabh (sir) Bachchan was admitted on Tuesday around 2 am concerning a health issue and had undergone a complete health check-up. 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 says.

Quashing all rumours about Bachchan undergoing liver treatment, the source adds, “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.”

Meanwhile, the acting is actively posting on social media and is blogging as well. “We spoke to him directly about all the queries that have bombarded us after this news break out and he has said that he will share more information himself by evening,” the source shares.
