Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan is recovering from successful abdominal surgery over the weekend, doctors say. The 69-year-old actor, who has a history of abdominal ailments, was operated on in a hospital in Mumbai on Saturday. Bachchan, suffered a near fatal injury during the shooting of an action scene on the set of the film ‘Coolie’ in 1982. Saturday’s surgery lasted for “about two to three hours and everything is normal,” tweeted Abhishek Bachchan. Bachchan is likely to be released early this week if everything is fine, his son said.
