Cannot read, write, see; Amitabh Bachchan

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan had left his fans worried over the weekend with an update about his health via the last blog post. The veteran actor had said that he had undergone surgery but did not reveal what kind.

Now, in a blog post, Bachchan had said that all is well and that he had undergone surgery for his eyes. He wrote, "Thank you for all the concern and the wishes for the medical condition ... eye surgeries at this age are delicate and need precision handling .. the best is being done and one hopes all shall be well .. the sight and the recovery is slow and difficult so if there are typing errors they are to be excused."

Speaking further about his current condition, Bachchan wrote, "The day passes with nothing to do ..cannot read cannot write .. cannot see .. so just sitting there in oblivion .. eyes shut most of the time and attempted listening to music, which is not a very convincing pastime .. unless of course it is being created .. but that too is 'out of bounds' for the moment."

"My love to all .. progress is slow .. and there is yet anther eye to go .. so its a long haul," he said.

On the work front, Big B has five films coming up. His next release is Rumi Jafry's psychological suspense drama Chehre, co-starring Emraan Hashmi and Rhea Chakraborty. The actor is currently busy shooting for the thriller Mayday, co-starring and directed by Ajay Devgn. The film also stars Rakul Preet Singh.

He will also be seen in Sairat maker Nagraj Manjule's social drama Jhund, and Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra co-starring Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy. Bachchan said that he will soon be starting work on Vikas Bahl's new film and hopes to recover in time for it. - DNA
