Amitabh Bachchan undergoes eye surgery, says another operation lined up


Guwahati: Amitabh Bachchan had his legion of fans worried as he revealed on Saturday night that he has undergone surgery. The actor didn’t reveal many details in his blog post.

On Monday morning, the 78-year-old actor wrote in a lengthy post that he had undergone a ‘delicate procedure’ for his eyes. “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 are slow and difficult so if there are typing errors they are to be excused. Right now I feel like Gary Sobers, the West Indian great and his narration of a cricket story which apparently he went through. The details of which shall be given in time. It is a story heard whether or not it is authentic is questionable.”

He also revealed that another surgery will happen shortly. “My love to all… progress is slow and there is yet another eye to go. So it’s a long haul, hoping of course that it all gets well in time for my schedule which begins in a few… the new film with Vikas Bahl, tentatively titled ‘GoodBye’.”
