Renowned Bollywood icon, Amitabh Bachchan, aged 81, has been admitted to Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai, undergoing angioplasty treatment to address a blood clot, as reported by News18. Although the specific cause prompting his medical attention remains undisclosed, sources cited by LiveMint affirm that Bachchan’s health concerns do not involve his heart.

Insiders revealed that the angioplasty procedure targeted a clot in his leg, not his heart, clarifying any misconceptions. Just before news of his hospitalization surfaced, Bachchan, affectionately known as Big B, expressed gratitude on X (formerly Twitter), with a heartfelt message.

In a separate social media update, he showcased a promotional video of his Indian Street Premier League (ISPL) team, Majhi Mumbai, rallying support with a spirited message. Bachchan’s team recently achieved victory over Chennai Singams in a gripping match, securing a spot in the first ISPL – T10 league final, fueled by Abhishek Dalhor’s stellar performance.

Bachchan’s illustrious career in Bollywood, spanning over five decades since his debut in Saat Hindustani in 1969, remains an unparalleled legacy. He continues to captivate audiences with his upcoming ventures, including his role in Kalki 2898 AD, helmed by acclaimed director Nag Ashwin, recognized for his exceptional works like Yevade Subramanyam and Mahanati.

Moreover, the veteran actor ventures into uncharted territory with his Tamil debut in Vettaiyan, under the direction of T. J. Gnanavel. Notably, he showcases his versatility by venturing into playback singing for the upcoming Kannada movie Butterfly, directed by Ramesh Aravind.
