Amitabh Bachchan was admitted to Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai; underwent angioplasty: Report


Amitabh Bachchan was recently hospitalised in Mumbai, according to a report by ABP News. The actor reportedly went to the hospital after complaining of shortness of breath, and was hospitalised; he reportedly had to undergo an operation.
Another report by The Indian Express said that ‘doctors at Kokilaben Hospital confirmed that Amitabh Bachchan underwent an angioplasty’ at the hospital early Friday. The report added that an official statement in this regard will be ‘issued by his PR team later in the day’.
As per a report by The Times of India, Amitabh has been discharged from hospital, and on Friday morning, an angioplasty was performed on a clot in his leg, and not on his heart, as was being reported by some portals. Hindustan Times could not independently verify these reports.
Amitabh Bachchan’s tweet
Amid such reports about his health, Amitabh tweeted on X on Friday, “T 4950 – in gratitude ever…” He also shared a video promoting his Indian Street Premier League (ISPL) team. Amitabh Bachchan or his family is yet to release a statement.
Amitabh’s tryst with health
Amitabh had undergone surgery for his wrist earlier this year. In January, he stared pictures with Akshay Kumar on his blog, sporting a sling on his wrist, writing, “Akshay, one of the owners (of ISPL)..and an explanation to him about the surgery on my hand.” In March last year, Amitabh was injured when he was shooting for Kalki 2898 AD in Hyderabad, with the harness straining his back, resulting in bed rest for the actor. He suffered from a torn muscle and strained rib cartilage then. Amitabh couldn’t travel to the San Diego Comic Con to promote the film last year due to medical restrictions.
Upcoming work
Amitabh recently shared on his blog that he shot for Nag Ashwin’s Kalki 2898 AD recently. He wrote, “Late nights again… but late from work last night… as the completion of KALKI approaches… and as has been informed it is May 9th for the release… So, the last efforts to get everything in shape and in order to bring to all an experience that promises the vision of the makers.”
