Actor Amitabh Bachchan wrote a blog to thank his fans for their constant support and love when he was undergoing eye surgery to get rid of cataract. The actor said that his fans’ “wishes of congratulations keep me company in the layout of the entire day and most of the night.” He also informed the fans that as soon as he recovers, he will get a go ahead for COVID-19 vaccine, which has become mandatory. “The vaccination has become mandatory and soon there shall be the conditioning for yours truly to be one such in queue,” the 78-year-old stated.
The actor, who will soon be seen in Chehre, spoke about “another strain,” hinting at the box office collections and called it “unnerving.”

Bachchan had his first eye surgery in February, while he had undergone his second eye surgery earlier this month.
Earlier in a blog, Amitabh had spoken about how the corrective eye surgery have opened up the world to him. “A wonderful world .. to see what was being missed till now .. the colours and shapes and sizes .. a life changing experience .. a saviour .. dr Himanshu Mehta and his dexterity with the very latest medical machinery .. to remove the cataracts despite the age related soft tissues of mine.”
However, he mentioned that a delay in these surgeries can lead to blindness. “Any delay in these corrections can lead to blindness .. so an advice .. get it done before it gets too late.”
On the work front, apart from Chehre, Amitabh Bachchan also has a few other movies in the pipeline. He will be seen in Brahmastra, starring Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor in the lead. He also has Jhund and Mayday in his kitty.
