Veteran Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan has thanked medical staff for taking care of him following his release from hospital on Thursday (23Feb12).
The 69-year-old actor was admitted to a medical facility in Mumbai, India earlier this month (Feb12) after suffering severe abdominal pain and he subsequently underwent surgery to treat an undisclosed condition.
He has now been released to continue his recovery at home and has thanked the doctors for their care and attention.
In a post on his blog, he writes, "Home!!!! Just discharged from hospital and am back home in familiar surroundings, gently taking in all that now engulfs me. The surgery discomfort and soreness persists, but will take a while to finally erase itself... but in all, apart from a sluggish movement, Gods grace and prayers... have put me back on track again. My most gracious thanks to all...
"The staff and the nurses... were all smiles and expressed sadness that I was leaving, which was rather sweet of them. They would miss me they said, but hoped I would never have to come back again in adverse circumstances."
