According to the latest reports, veteran Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan will have to stay in hospital for a few more days.

"T 661 - Looks like a few more days then before they set me free .. but recovery at home will be another few months .." tweeted the actor.

"T 661 - Getting independent gradually .. a careful shower, avoiding the cuts and needles and 'kites' .. pretty dextrous exercise ...!!! Wonderful to see all your faculties coming back in use .. those that lose them permanently, how ever do they manage ... !! " Big B continued tweeting.

The actor is currently at the Seven Hills hospital, following an abdominal surgery on Feb. 11. Unfortunately, the actor complained of severe pain following the operation and was therefore not discharged immediately.

The surgeries are the result of long-term injuries the actor suffered, to his stomach, when filming "Coolie" in 1982.
