After returning home, the actor posted a long note on his blog. He asked everyone to respect his privacy and wrote, “Do NOT break the CODE of professional documentation .. ailments and medical conditions are a confidential individual right .. its exploitation, and its attempted commerce are a social illegality .. respect and give required understanding to this .. all is not in the world of sale.” He ended the blog saying, “My love .. and my gratitude for all .. for all that consider care , that consider concern and consider prayer for me.”

Earlier, a source from Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital, Mumbai told Hindustan Times 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 said. Quashing rumours about Bachchan undergoing liver treatment, the source added, “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.”

The actor is currently hosting Kaun Banega Crorepati that airs on Sony Entertainment Channel. “He has already shot for few episodes and we have a bank of episodes ready. Hence he did not come for shoot. He will resume shoot from Tuesday,” a Sony official said.
