Big B, Jaya visit Shatrughan Sinha in hospital

Shatrughan Sinha underwent bypass surgery on Thursday and is on the road of recovery. He has got few visitors in hospital including Amitabh Bachchan and his wife Jaya Bachchan. Jaya and Big paid a visit to their friend and actor at Mumbai Kokilaben hospital.

"Shatrughan Sinha in hospital with a bypass heart surgery. Jaya and I immediately go and visit him," Amitabh wrote on his blog, after visiting the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital Thursday.

"He has done well and so have the doctors and he remains in his room, out of the ICU, chatting dime a dozen with his humour intact! So reassuring," added the 69-year-old, Big B was glad to see his actor-politician friend on the road to quick recovery.

"Watching colleagues in hospital beds, suffering and in medical condition, is disturbing. But Shatrughan is in good spirits, as he always is, talking non-stop and showing no signs of the trauma he has been through. Thank god," he posted.

Amitabh Bachchan and Shatrughan Sinha have worked together in films like Bombay to Goa, Kaala Patthar and Naseeb.

Shatrughan Sinha was admitted to the hospital a week ago when he complained of uneasiness and difficult in breathing. According to the actor turned politician, it all happened due to painting work in his house but after thorough examination, doctors found some blockages and suggested for bypass. During the surgery, his wife Ponam Sinha, two sons Luv and Kush and daughter Sonakshi Sinha was present. Sonakshi also informed about the well being of her father.

Sonakshi who is busy with the promotion of her next flick, ‘Joker’ said,  "The promotions are not getting affected in any way; in fact, they are going on very smoothly. My dad will be proud of our good work. He is fine, that is all I can say."
