Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was discharged from Mumbai’s Nanavati hospital on late Friday night.

The veteran actor was reportedly admitted to the hospital on Tuesday. While a lot of conflicting reports had been doing the rounds in various sections of the media since Thursday about his health condition, Big B was finally discharged on October 18 at 10 pm.

Big B’s wife Jaya Bachchan and son Abhishek took him home. 

The megastar had been hospitalised for routine check-up and is doing fine now. He has been advised bed rest for some time. 

Reportedly, Big B was kept in a special room, which was equivalent to an ICU. 

Amitabh Bachchan has a history of liver issues as he has been surviving on just 25 per cent of his liver. The actor revealed this in an awareness video by UNICEF. He contracted Hepatitis B virus in 1982 when he was transfused with infected blood post a fatal accident on the sets of his movie Coolie.

Big B is expected to resume shooting for the quiz show, “Kaun Banega Crorepati” (KBC), on Tuesday.

Amitabh Bachchan had continued his Twitter activity despite being admitted to the hospital and this left his fans confused. On Karwa Chauth, Big B posted a photo with wife Jaya. ”करवाचौथ की शुभकामनाएँ ; उन्हें ,जो प्रण करती हैं पति के जीवन के लिए,” he wrote.

He even shared much-needed gyan and threw some light on harsh reality of the society. ”लोग अक्सर कहते हैं  :  “और ये है , हमारी घर की बहू ” ये नहीं कहते  की : “और ये घर हमारी बहू का है ” !,” he tweeted.
