MUMBAI: Bollywood veteran Amitabh Bachchan revealed today that he received eye surgery and that he is slowly recovering. The actor updated his fans about his condition post-surgery and made an entry in his new blog.
Big B wrote “thank you for all the concern and the wishes for the medical condition.. eye surgeries at this age are delicate and need precision handling .. the best is being done and one hopes all shall be well .. the sight and the recovery is slow and difficult so if there are typing errors they are to be excused.. right now I feel like Gary Sobers, the West Indian great and his narration of a cricket story which apparently he went through .. the details of which shall be given in time .. its a story heard whether or not it is authentic is questionable …. well…. why wait shall give it now ..”.
Big B explained why he feels like West Indies cricketing great Gary Sobers in his letter: “at a cricket match with a strong opponent WI was not in a very good position and looked to loose the game .. Gary Sobers sitting in the dressing room and seeing the eventual, opened up his bottle of rum and had a few .. when his turn to bat came he went out and scored his fastest hundred .. when asked how did he do it .. he said when I went out I was seeing three balls .. I was hitting the middle one .. !!!!
My eye condition is somewhat similar .. I am seeing three letters for each word and hitting the middle button ..”
The actor shared, “The day passes with nothing to do ..cannot read cannot write .. cannot see .. so just sitting there in oblivion .. eyes shut most of the time and attempted listening to music, which is not a very convincing pastime .. unless of course it is being created .. but that too is ‘out of bounds’ for the moment ..”
He also took to Twitter and posted namaste emoticons as a gesture of thanking his fans.
