Hundreds of fans of megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Tuesday held a mahayagna praying for the fast recovery and long life of their idol undergoing treatment in Mumbai's Leelawati Hospital.

The mood was sombre at the south Kolkata venue of the yagna where priests chanted mantras in front of a holy fire as admirers of the star of the millennium prayed for his recovery.
